License or certificate:
The Director of the Wisconsin Area Health Education Center (AHEC) System provides overall
leadership, direction, organization and fiscal oversight of Wisconsin's statewide AHEC program and
serves as PI/Project Director on Wisconsin's HRSA grant U77 HP03045, the federal cooperative
agreement for Wisconsin AHEC.
Wisconsin AHEC is dedicated to improving access to quality health care through development of
community-based health professions training programs and enhancement of community health
education resources throughout Wisconsin. It is distinguished by its strong statewide organization
and the tradition of collaboration among its regional Centers. Wisconsin has seven independent
regional centers, all 501c3 organizations with their own governing boards, and a statewide board
comprised of representatives of the Center governing boards, the partnering health professions
programs and at-large representatives. The Wisconsin program has always had a mission of serving
all health professions programs in the state, and has, from its inception, had a focus on developing
interprofessional experiences for students. Academic program partners include: 2 medical schools
(UW and MCW), over 20 BSN nursing programs, 8 advanced degree nursing programs, 5 physician
assistant programs, 2 pharmacy programs, 4 MPH programs, 8 social work programs and a range of
allied health and preprofessional programs at the 13 UW System campuses, 21 private colleges, 2
tribal colleges, 13 UW System two-year campuses and the Wisconsin Technical College System's 16
colleges, 47 campuses and other outreach centers.
The AHEC Director administers a core budget of approximately $2 million in state and federal funding,
developing AHEC's statewide program activities, supervising program staff in the Madison program
office and coordinating the work of seven regional centers and the statewide Board of
Directors. The number of employees in the Madison office varies according to grant activity, but
includes a core of 2.5 FTE academic staff and 2-4 student interns. The regional centers have
approximately 25 employees, including the seven regional directors, who are employed by their own
governing Boards. Additional project-specific grants and contracts to the Program Office and to
individual Centers add approximately $1 million annually to the resources of the system as a whole.
The School of Medicine and Public Health has a deep and profound commitment to diversity both as an end in itself but, also as a valuable means for eliminating health disparities. As such, we strongly encourage applications from candidates who foster and promote the values of diversity and inclusion.
