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.
