Advance Your Career with Continuing Education in Eastern NC

As the healthcare industry changes its practices, technologies and standards, it is important for healthcare professionals to have a way to stay up to date. Eastern AHEC is here to offer advanced resources for the healthcare community in eastern North Carolina. We help professionals in allied health, dentistry, medicine, mental health, nursing, pharmacy and public health advance their careers and stay on top of their fields. One of the many ways we do this is through continuing education and professional development in Greenville and all across eastern North Carolina. Many of our programs are multidisciplinary and/or interprofessional in nature.
