The WWAMI Area Health Education Center (AHEC) at the University of Washington works to improve the diversity, distribution, and quality of the health workforce in Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho. The AHEC program relies on partnerships with communities in the states of Washington, Wyoming, Alaska, Montana, and Idaho (the “WWAMI” states) to promote health career pathways, create educational opportunities for students from junior high school all the way through professional and post-graduate training, and support health care providers in underserved populations.

The WWAMI AHEC continues its more than two decades of work as an integral part of the larger WWAMI program, a 30+ years old medical education program serving the five state region. Consistent with the overall aims of the Federal AHEC Program, the WWAMI AHEC supports activities that provide health workforce development and education away from large cities through partnerships with independent AHEC centers. By sharing resources with the WWAMI medical program, the WWAMI AHEC is well-positioned to help improve the quality and distribution of all health professionals into the mostly-rural region.
