Developing the Workforce for a Healthy North Carolina

The NC AHEC Program began in 1972 to address national and state concerns with the supply, distribution, and retention of health care professionals. In 1974, the State of North Carolina’s General Assembly supported a plan to create a statewide network. Today, thanks to federal and state legislative support, the NC AHEC program consists of the NC AHEC Program Office, a network of nine regional AHECs, and the Duke AHEC program.

Located in Wilmington, South East AHEC (SEAHEC) provides quality resources, education, and training to health providers in Brunswick, Columbus, Duplin, New Hanover, and Pender counties. SEAHEC has been serving south eastern North Carolina’s health workforce since 1972.

SEAHEC is partnered with New Hanover Regional Medical Center (NHRMC), and governed by the NHRMC Board of Directors.
