SFCCC Addresses Health Care Workforce Needs

SFCCC serves as the federally designated Area Health Education Center (AHEC) for San Francisco.  The AHEC program is administered by HRSA’s Bureau of Health Professions through a grant to UCSF-Fresno.  In the first quarter of the 2011-12 AHEC program year, the San Francisco AHEC provided continuing education to 219 health care practitioners and staff in underserved communities; arranged community-based training for 12 medical residents and 3 health professions students; and promoted health careers through service-learning by 31 AmeriCorps and VISTA members and youth interns.
