The Michigan AHEC program was established in 2010 by Wayne State University as a partnership between the School of Medicine and the School of Nursing. Through its network of five regional centers located throughout the state, Michigan AHEC helps address the health care needs of residents throughout Michigan. The primary purpose of MI-AHEC is to help address the workforce shortage of health care professionals in Michigan. MI-AHEC works towards this mission via: 1) pipeline programming to support students' interest and preparation for health professional careers, particularly students from under represented and disadvantaged backgrounds; 2) support of community based training efforts; and 3) targeted efforts to recruit and retain health professionals in Michigan especially in medically underserved communities.
