The South Central AHEC region, based in Bowling Green, led efforts to create the Glasgow-Barren County Family Medicine Residency Program to encourage family medicine physicians to remain and practice in the area after their residency is completed. The Northwest AHEC is located in Louisville and utilizes a variety of activities to introduce K-12 students to health profession careers. The West AHEC is based in Madisonville and partners with the UofL School of Dentistry and the Henderson County Community College Dental Assisting/Hygiene program in operating the Henderson Children's Free Dental Clinic to address poor oral health for Kentucky's children.

Throughout all regions, UofL Health Sciences Center students in 11 disciplines complete clinical rotations at AHEC centers. These medical, nursing, dental, allied health and other health profession students experience practical, hands-on training in clinics, private offices and community hospitals in the AHEC regions.

UofL also provides physicians, dentists, nurses and other health professionals who practice throughout the AHEC regions with continuing education programs and support services. Additionally, the KY AHEC Library Network links these professionals to the medical information resources available at UofL, providing them access to textbook collections, reference works, medical journals and online computer resources.

KY AHEC is primarily funded by appropriations from the
