Championing Alabama Healthcare Resources One County at a Time

AHEC is doing our part to improve diversity, quality, & workforce availability throughout all 67 Alabama counties.

Proudly Strengthening Healthcare in Your AL Community

The Alabama Statewide AHEC Program remains committed to expanding the health care workforce of Alabama by maximizing diversity and facilitating distribution—particularly within its underserved and rural communities. We have boots on the ground and powerful initiatives underway in each of Alabama’s 67 counties to bolster diversity, strengthen care, and streamline access for a better present and future.

The goals of the Alabama Statewide AHEC Program are:

  • To influence the training of health professions students and residents toward primary care
  • To provide continuing education and support for targeted health providers
  • To implement programs, services, and activities that target underrepresented minorities, rural and otherwise disadvantaged Alabamians for careers in the health professions.

These goals are accomplished through an innovative, collaborative, and interprofessional response to the needs of our communities. We’re always looking for local and regional partners to further our vision of an Alabama with equal access to quality care for each of our nearly 5 million residents. See how you can help in your community today.
