About South Central AHEC

South Central Wisconsin Area Health Education Center (SCAHEC) serves a region that includes both rural and urban underserved areas, but is also home to major medical facilities including the University of Wisconsin Hospital and Clinics in Madison, and the Mercy Medical System in Janesville. The region is also served by three federally-qualified community health centers, each with several care delivery sites.

Throughout the region, health care providers serve an increasingly culturally-diverse population, including African-American, Hispanic, Hmong, American Indian and Amish. South Central AHEC has partnership projects with the UW Medical School, UW Nursing School, UW Physician Assistant program, the Allied Health programs at UW, the health careers programs at the region’s technical colleges, and the Rural Wisconsin Health Cooperative. Through these partnerships, South Central AHEC supports collaborative projects between communities and academic institutions that provide clinical placements and opportunities for health professions students at all levels. Annually, South Central AHEC hosts a health career summer camp in Madison to acquaint high school students with the career opportunities in health care.
