Health Careers Program

Due to the shortage of minorities in the healthcare professions, Pee Dee Area Health Education Center (AHEC) offers a variety of activities for students in middle, high, and college who may be pursuing a career in the health professions.

The HCP is designed to develop academically proficient and self-confident future healthcare professionals. Specific goals are to:

  • Facilitate a coordinated, statewide approach for increasing the number and diversity of students entering the health professions pipeline in South Carolina.
  • Identify additional resources to support student programs in the state.
  • Develop an evidence-based healthcare student recruitment and retention plan of activities.
