The Vermont AHEC Network

The Northeastern Vermont AHEC is part of a statewide network made up of academic and community partners working together to improve the distribution, diversity, supply and quality of the health care workforce in Vermont.  The AHEC in Vermont was initiated in 1996 through the University of Vermont (UVM) College of Medicine and with the support of community partners in health care.  By 1999, the Vermont AHEC had established a statewide infrastructure consisting of a Program Office at the UVM College of Medicine and three regional centers. 

Northeastern Vermont AHEC was the first regional center established in Vermont in 1997.  Our mission is to promote excellence in rural health care systems by connecting students to careers, professionals to communities, and communities to better health.  Northeastern Vermont AHEC serves Caledonia, Essex, Lamoille, Orange, Orleans and Washington counties.  
Other regional centers serve the Champlain Valley and Southern Vermont.  The role of the regional centers is to support local community health care systems.  Particular attention is paid to meeting the needs of Vermont’s most rural areas and its underserved populations.

The Vermont AHEC network is part of the National AHEC Organization, consisting of university-based program offices and community-based centers in 48 of the 50 states.  AHECs all across the country provide a health careers “pipeline” by assisting students into higher education, health careers, and the health care workforce.
