South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium

South Carolina AHEC builds and supports the healthcare workforce South Carolina needs.

Established in 1972, the South Carolina AHEC exists to help improve the health of South Carolina’s citizens. South Carolina AHEC is the only organization in South Carolina that addresses healthcare workforce needs starting at the level of elementary school education and extending to practicing healthcare professionals throughout the state.

We are giving thanks for all of the wonderful students, health professionals and partners we get to work with across South Carolina! Have a happy Thanksgiving!

We are proud and honored to be able to work with partners across the state to support South Carolina's rural health workforce and to help train the next generation of rural providers! #PowerofRural

We had a great time this week welcoming our new interprofessional cohort of #SCAHECscholars!

The Daily Yonder

"When it comes to college and graduate school apps, we tend to think of diversity as pertaining to race, ethnicity, gender, or socio-economic background. But schools want geographically-diverse students and their perspectives, too, because they, *you*, strengthen the fabric of the academic conversation."

The details of a rural upbringing can make for an exceptional personal statement for college applications. A writing coach tells how.
