Health Career Preparation Programs
Northeast Florida Area Health Education Center is a leader in providing programs that support and encourage students to become future health professionals by providing access to academic enrichment programs. These health career preparation programs greatly improve the supply and diversity of the health workforce in north Florida. To accomplish this objective, Northeast Florida AHEC recruits students from disadvantaged backgrounds based on economic, geographical (rural or urban-inner city), educational opportunity disparities and/or underrepresented ethnic or cultural groups in the health professions. Through collaboration with our community partners (including county health departments, community health centers, rural hospitals and clinics, private physicians and academic institutions), Northeast Florida AHEC is able to increase the knowledge of health careers (including public health) for students.
