THE MISSION OF MICHIGAN AHEC

"Supporting the recruitment and retention of health professionals through diversity, distribution, and practice transformation."

Strategies used to achieve our goals:

  • Utilize secondary data analysis to consider which counties are at high risk for health disparities and morbidity.

  • Contact potential stakeholders in each county and perform primary needs assessments and analysis via interviews and Community Engagement meetings.

  • Collaborate with partners and stakeholders to design programs for students to engage them towards rural health care careers.

  • Track students over their educational years to monitor their intended health career track and if they then decide to practice in a rural area.
