The Hawaii/Pacific Basin Area Health Education Center (AHEC) improves the health of the underserved through education. There are four main activity areas: Educating and recruiting students to health professions from K-12 schools. Educating health professions students in the rural and underserved communities of Hawaii, often in multi professional teams. Recruiting health care professionals to rural and underserved areas and providing continuing education. Providing community based and community driven education for all underserved groups in Hawaii. Important areas of concentration are improving video teleconferencing capabilities as well as telemedicine and telehealth utilization, and performing health and health workforce needs assessments.
Our goal is to facilitate access to an abundant supply of knowledgeable and culturally competent providers through training and recruitment partnerships that will improve the diversity, distribution and quality of the health professions workforce. AHECs provide accredited, high quality continuing education offerings and professional support to meet the needs of health care professionals, especially those practicing in underserved areas. These programs are designed to enhance clinical skills and help maintain professional certifications. Programs also focus on recruitment, placement and retention activities to address community and state health care workforce needs.
