Eastern Maine Area Health Education Center

The Eastern Maine Area Health Education Center (EMAHEC) supports placement and training of over 300 each year: physician, physician assistant, dental, pharmacy, nurse practitioner, counseling, physical therapy, and other students for internships and field education.

The Maine Area Health Education Center (AHEC) Network’s mission is to alleviate health workforce shortages in rural and underserved areas of the state. AHEC supports that effort by working with academic and community partners to:

  • Provide rural, community-based clinical training experiences for medical and other health professions students
  • Encourage Maine youth and mid-career professionals to explore health careers
  • Support practicing health professionals with continuing education and distance learning opportunities
