Texas AHEC East - Capital Region is located in the heart of Texas in the great city of Austin. Our region hosts the Capital of Texas which makes our AHEC more focused on legislative issue that effect healthcare. With our state's government officials located in our backyard, we help represent health careers and policies that affect them.
Our host institution is CommUnityCare Health Centers. This is a benefit to our region because the organization is a Federally Qualified Health Center (FQHC) which focuses on proving care to the undeserved populations. AHEC works closely with our host to ensure that there are enough healthcare providers for our region as well as students being exposed to work with vulnerable populations.
In addition the Capital Region has multiple hospital systems, a large number of higher education institutions, and multiple school districts offer health science programs. Working together AHEC helps to bring these groups together to provide unique experience to students while building our future workforce.
