Welcome to AHEC

The Michigan Area Health Education Center (MI-AHEC) was established in 2010 to improve access to primary care for all Michigan residents, many of whom live in areas that have too few health professionals. Through recruitment and retention initiatives, as well as special clinical education programs, MI-AHEC seeks to expose disadvantaged students to health care opportunities, expand the number of underrepresented minorities in the health professions, and encourage students and health professionals to work in areas that need greater access to primary care providers. The national AHEC program was created by Congress in 1971.

These skills can easily be applied during the senior year of high school.
