Yukon Kuskokwim Area Health Education Center

YKHC is one of three statewide grant recipients of the Alaska Health Education Center (AHEC) program.

The intent of AHEC is to provide support and training for all of  YKHC employees such as Annual Mandatory Orientation, including mandatory training requirements and certifications demanded by the health care industry and The Joint Commission.

Understanding the geographic constraints in our health service areas, some of our YKHC employees have access to a training program streamed over the intranet for some of these training requirements and utilize a program known as HealthStream. In addition to this, YKHC’s Career Pathways program falls under AHEC’s menu of services where community outreach and promotion of health careers is provided to local and regional youth and adult learners seeking careers in the health industry.
