The Wisconsin AHEC System works to improve the supply, distribution and quality of health care professionals in Wisconsin.


Wisconsin AHEC improves access to quality health care by developing community-based health professions training programs and enhancing health education resources across the state.

AHEC is a health professions education and outreach program funded by federal grant and direct appropriation from the state legislature. It is part of a nationwide network of programs for improving accessibility and quality of primary health care. The national program was designed to encourage universities and educators to look beyond their institutions to partnerships that meet community health needs, working toward the goal of decentralizing health professions training and linking communities with academic health centers in partnerships to promote cooperative solutions to local health problems.
