Behavioral Health Workforce Education & Training
Montana Office of Rural Health/AHEC exists to enhance access to quality healthcare, particularly primary and preventative care, by improving the supply and distribution of healthcare professional through community/academic educational partnerships. Our partnerships have created programs and committees to support Montana communities and the state's healthcare workforce. We recently received a HRSA grant to provide tuition reimbursement for anyone who completes one of our offered behavioral health trainings.
Due to COVID-19 precautions, behavioral health trainings will be offered in virtual format whenever possible.
