What is AHEC?
Area Health Education Center. Since 1999, the Vermont AHEC Network has engaged academic and community partners to improve the distribution, diversity, supply, and quality of the health workforce in Vermont, especially in our rural and underserved communities. Southern Vermont AHEC is one of two independent nonprofit regional AHEC centers in Vermont.
Primary Goals of the Vermont AHEC Network:
- Strengthen Vermont’s health workforce development infrastructure through academic and community partnerships.
- Helping to train and develop a diverse healthcare workforce prepared to deliver culturally appropriate, high-quality team-based care with an emphasis on primary care for rural and underserved populations in Vermont.
High School & Middle School
Will you be earning a degree in Health Sciences? Internships can open doors to many career possibilities. Undergraduate students in our College Student Healthcare Internship Program (CSHIP) gain valuable work experience in community-based internships in our region. We offer paid internships that can be in-person, remote, or hybrid depending on the project.
Health Professions Students
Working and living in rural communities where your clinical expertise is greatly needed, offers a deeper connection to the people and their culture. We have numerous community projects that provide rewarding and meaningful experiences that can positively impact underserved populations.
