Addressing the Shortage of Healthcare Workers in Northern Arizona

 

Who We Are

The Colorado Plateau Center for Health Professions (CPCHP), formerly known as the Northern Arizona Area Health Education Center (NAHEC), exists to improve the health of rural and underserved communities in northern Arizona by building, training and strengthening the health workforce.

With over 30 years of experience and a deep understanding of the challenges our local communities face, CPCHP tackles the shortage of healthcare professionals by creating a supportive health career pathway for youth, training healthcare students and residents in the communities where they are needed most, and empowering practicing providers to make a difference in their patients’ lives.
