Building a Diverse Health Professions Workforce Throughout Oregon

Who We Are

Hosted by OHSU, Oregon AHEC is comprised of a program office and five regional centers. The Oregon AHEC network works to increase access to primary care services in rural and urban underserved areas through the recruitment, training and retention of primary care health professionals.

We accomplish this by:

  • Educating Oregonians about health career opportunities.
  • Supporting high school and college learners statewide to progress along the health care professions educational and career pathway.
  • Facilitating community-based clinical training experiences for health professions students and residents.
  • Providing continuing education for Oregon’s practicing health care professionals in multiple disciplines.
