Since 1996, the South Central AHEC has worked with area school districts, college, universities and regional community based partners to increase the capacity of the communities to address the unmet and disparate health needs of their citizens through educational intervention. It has always been our objective to ensure diversity in the health care workforce by collaborating with agencies and organizations to provide interdisciplinary training, continuing education and educational opportunities to health professions students, faculty and health providers throughout the south central region of Texas.
The mission of the South Central AHEC is to improve access to quality health care through facilitation of community-based health professions training programs and initiatives.
