The Kentucky AHEC System is a cooperative venture of the University of Louisville Health Science Center and the University of Kentucky Medical Center.
Through state and federal funding, eight centers or AHECs are maintained at strategic locations throughout the state.
The following offices are under the direction of the University of Louisville School of Medicine:
- South Central AHEC (Bowling Green)
- West AHEC (Madisonville)
- Jackson Purchase AHEC (Murray)
- Northwest AHEC (Louisville's West End)
The following offices are under the direction of the University of Kentucky College of Medicine:
- Northeast AHEC (Morehead)
- Southeast AHEC (Hazard)
- Southern AHEC (Mt. Vernon)
- North Central AHEC (Park Hills)
Each AHEC is responsive to a specific area of the state and is staffed by a Center Director and discipline specific staff that will assist students and provide information about the area. Each regional office serves as a focal point for all student activity in their designated areas. Students from both universities are welcome at any of the locations.
