EASTERN SHORE AREA HEALTH EDUCATION 

CENTER

A Distinct Identity

WHO WE ARE

To accomplish our mission, AHEC works to recruit and retain health professionals in the medically underserved areas on the Eastern Shore by offering health education programs for professionals in the service area as well as students from colleges and universities in Maryland and the surrounding areas.

STUDENTS

Connecting Students to Careers

Health care workers often return to practice where they trained, and students learn from experience that it’s rewarding to work in underserved areas. That’s why we connnect young people and students to training opportunities with minority and disadvantaged populations, in rural areas such as the Eastern Shore of Maryland.

HEALTH PROFESSIONALS

Connecting Professionals to Communities

Our programs in Geriatric Assessment, Dental Health, and HPV are just of a few of the many quality, diverse and affordable educational opportunities we offer healthcare professionals on the Eastern Shore. In addition, ESAHEC recruits healthcare providers to serve as clinical preceptors to students considering a career in rural health. A win for everyone!

COMMUNITIES

Connecting Communities to Better Health

Rural areas such as the Eastern Shore face health resource challenges that often lead to disparities in health outcomes. Through our work training Community Health Worker professionals, to our partnerships with local health and social service agencies, we mobilize resources to help close the gaps in health.
