Berkshire AHEC inter-professional trainings are evidence based and include best practices in the most current patient and client centered care.  We feel that the successful delivery of healthcare needs to be interdependent and inter-professional education and communication is an excellent place to start.  Berkshire AHEC facilitates continuing professional development that seeks to enhance the knowledge, skills, competence and/or performance of health and human service providers and professionals.

Please note:  We have moved to the campus of Berkshire Community College, 1350 West Street, Suite K213H,  Pittsfield, MA.  We are located between the Tutoring Center & the Testing Center, on the 2nd floor of the Koussevitsky Building.

Stay tuned for upcoming program information and please check out the following conferences for which we are providing credits:

April 5, 2018:  Protecting Ourselves from Vicarious Trauma, presented by NAMI of Berkshire County

April 26, 2018: Together for Children Conference, presented by Berkshire County Kid’s Place


What Are Participants Saying About
Berkshire AHEC Trainings?

Great content & discussion- much needed “come together” of diverse health professionals to discuss challenges of actionable solutions to improve care transitions.  All front line providers must do this!

Excellent program, very relevant to what the future of health care will become and it will take a team approach across many disciplines.

The information provided today was pertinent to today’s health care industry and will empower each individual to help provide patient centered care and provide leadership to our peers.

This was essential knowledge for nurses on the front lines in creating safe patient transitions and was not available in our area.

This was an excellent program on MS and the presenters were fantastic!

Berkshire AHEC does an excellent job of putting together speakers with a wealth of information and knowledge. Berkshire AHEC coordinates excellent programs with experts that provide the best information to audiences. Staff mange each detail from initiation to the conclusion of the program.  I am very impressed with Berkshire AHEC.
