Missouri Area Health Education Center

We believe the key to creating healthier communities starts with students. We connect these fresh minds with health care professionals who can provide them with the education and mentorship to confidently pursue health care careers vital to the future of Southeast Missouri.

Enhancing access to health care.
Growing Missouri's medical workforce.

At SEMO AHEC, we are always working toward a more health conscious public. Our goal is to provide informative and educational activities to developing minds and to connect future health care professionals with doctors, nurses, and other experts who can guide them according to their own experiences and expertise.


Granting high school students and undergraduates a greater understanding of the healthcare and medical fields through educational opportunities, career planning and health awareness programs.


One of SEMO AHEC's primary objectives to connect our student participants with highly qualified mentors whose skills and professional goals are compatible with the student's potential career path.


Whether you're a student or a parent, don't miss an opportunity to use the courses, activities, and other resources we have to offer. As a professional, learn when and where you can contribute to your community.
