About Champlain Valley AHEC

Area Health Education Centers (AHECs) are federally funded initiatives to improve public health and the delivery of primary care in under-served areas across the United States.


By joining the resources of the University of Vermont, the Larner College of Medicine and teaching hospitals with community resources, Champlain Valley AHEC supports the recruitment and retention of health professionals in rural and under-served areas and helps improve public health for all citizens. The University of Vermont AHEC program through Champlain Valley AHEC is the conduit to students, medical faculty, and all the resources of a teaching hospital.

We also provide important health career information and exploration programming for middle and high school students encouraging their entry into the health career pipeline and helping address the needs of our communities.
