New Hampshire Health Area Education Center (AHEC)

Homepage: http://tdi.dartmouth.edu/hcid

The recently funded New Hampshire AHEC program represents a partnership between the state of New Hampshire, Dartmouth Medical School, the University of New Hampshire, New Hampshire Technical Institute, and federally designated Community Health Centers in Raymond and Littleton, New Hampshire. This partnership builds on the existing set of programs and activities that support the AHEC mission but lack the infrastructure to provide a fully coordinated and comprehensive approach to meeting primary care education needs in the state.

AHEC programs are targeted to health professions students, health professionals in practice and the general population. The goal of the program is to attract high quality primary care health providers to underserved communities, to meet their needs for educational support and, ultimately, to ensure that they maintain a long successful tenure in their community.
