Initially funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA), Area Health Education Centers (AHECs) exist to address healthcare workforce issues, particularly in rural and underserved locations. Our goal at the South Central Alaska AHEC is to grow the Alaskan workforce in all healthcare sectors, including allied health, nursing, behavioral health, and public health. Moreover, we seek to address the demand for professionals across the whole spectrum from entry-level to clinical providers. We focus on underserved students and populations as a matter of social justice, and look forward to a future where all Alaskans have great access to quality healthcare and excellent opportunities for employment.

Our History: The SC Alaska AHEC began in 2007 at the Providence Alaska Family Medicine Residency Program. Our Center moved to the Providence Alaska Learning Institute, then Providence Community Health Services/Mission Services between 2007-2015. In the fall of 2015, the Alaska Primary Care Association adopted the SC Alaska AHEC as its organizational host. Providence Alaska Medical Center continues to host the AHEC offices in the basement of the A Tower of the hospital.
