Continuing Education

One of the ways the North Dakota AHEC pursues its mission is through the provision of quality continuing education (CE) programs, resources and technical assistance services to practicing health professionals and agencies in the state. The North Dakota AHEC can help identify, provide, and develop continuing education opportunities for health professionals through community based education and training. We are committed to helping access up-to-date, evidence-based information through professional meetings, conferences, webinars, and locally designed trainings.
