Mid-Missouri Area Health Education Center (AHEC)

The Missouri Area Health Education Center (MAHEC) network is a federal, state and local partnership that promotes health-care careers through recruitment, clinical training, education, community resources, and collaboration. The MAHEC mission and objectives align with federal AHEC requirements: to enhance access to quality health care, particularly primary and preventative care, by growing and supporting Missouri’s health care workforce.
These efforts are supported in part with funds from the Missouri Department of Health and Senior Services (DHSS); the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (DHHS), Bureau of Health Professions (BHP); and local support mechanisms.
