Critical Access Hospital-Continuing Education
SWI-AHEC partnered with the University of Southern Indiana to create a continuing education program focused on the needs of Critical Access Hospitals. This pilot program was a huge success and has been implemented as a continual program. This opportunity is available to Critical Access Hospital throughout the state of Indiana, as well as other states. SWI-AHEC provided financial support for the Critical Access Hospitals in Southwest Indiana, if your Critical Access Hospital is located in another region of Indiana there may be local AHEC funding available.
