The University of Vermont College of Medicine AHEC Program is a statewide network of community and academic partners working together through three AHEC centers and a Program Office to improve the health of Vermonters.
Vermont AHEC works to promote rural health educational opportunities and address health care workforce challenges unique to specific areas of the state through community-based initiatives. Each AHEC Center is a not-for-profit, independent organization governed by a community-based board that includes community leaders and health care practitioners from the area. Together, the University of Vermont Program Office and the three AHEC Centers work with community and academic partners to accomplish their goals.
The program's three AHEC Centers cover the entire State of Vermont. The Northeastern VT AHEC started in 1997 and is located in St. Johnsbury working with the counties of Caledonia, Essex, Lamoille, Orange, Orleans and Washington. The Champlain Valley AHEC began in 1998, is located in St. Albans and covers the counties of Addison, Chittenden, Franklin and Grand Isle. The Southern VT AHEC started in 1999 and is located in Springfield. SVAHEC works with the counties of Bennington, Rutland, Windham and Windsor.
