Purchase AHEC is committed to provide learning resources for health care professionals. We work to develop programs that provide continuing education opportunities which include conferences, interactive/satellite downlink conferences, and medical research assistance.

Continuing Medical Education
Purchase AHEC, in conjunction with the University of Louisville Continuing Health Sciences Education department, can assist in coordinating the approval and delivery of local continuing medical education programs (ACCME). Assistance is available with all aspects of CME delivery, from designing & implementing staff surveys to the final details of coordinating the presentations. Programs can be planned based upon physicians' needs and at times that are convenient to their schedules.
Continuing education courses are also coordinated for dentists, dental hygienists, and assistants, with credit secured through the Kentucky Board of Dentistry.
