South Central Kentucky AHEC, housed within the College of Health and Human Services at WKU, is dedicated to promoting healthy communities through an educational pipeline. AHEC works with students, health professionals, and communities to provide resources and programs that lead to healthier communities.
AHEC cultivates student interest in health careers by creating and funding programs for students in middle school, high school, and college that foster an interest in the health field.

Every health student in Kentucky (medical, PT, pharmacy, PA, etc.) must complete clinical rotations. AHEC partners students with quality preceptors. AHEC also assists with arranging temporary housing while students complete their clinical rotation.
