Area Health Education Consortium

Established in 1972, the South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium (AHEC) was one of the 11 originally funded projects of the federal AHEC program. It functions as a cooperative effort of the Medical University of South Carolina, the University of South Carolina, South Carolina community teaching hospitals, and regional AHEC Centers.

The agency's programs: increase the number of young people who aspire to become healthcare professionals, emphasizing underrepresented ethnic minority groups and the economically disadvantaged; facilitate clinical rotations for health professions students in rural and underserved areas; increase the physician workforce by sponsoring graduate medical education residency training programs; enhance clinical competence by providing educational programs for healthcare providers at or near their workplace; and increase the healthcare workforce by maintaining programs to recruit and retain primary care providers.
