Workforce Development

To improve the workforce distribution of health professionals in rural and urban medically underserved areas across Tennessee, the TN AHEC will lead a collaborative effort under the Health Workforce Development Collaborative (HWDC) to develop a more competitive, inter-disciplinary, health professions applicant pool of rural and urban underrepresented minority and educationally disadvantaged students (RUUMEDS) who are interested in practicing in rural and urban medically underserved areas (RUMUAs).
