The application requests $164,032 to purchase equipment to support training by Berkshire AHEC at its primary training sites, Berkshire Medical Center (BMC) and Fairview Hospital, a critical access hospital in Berkshire County, MA. $64,992 is requested for dental radiography equipment and $99,040 for audio-visual equipment. The University of Massachusetts Medical School (UMMS), the applicant and host of the Massachusetts AHEC Network (MassAHEC), will assure that at 100% percent of the benefit of the equipment will be focused on AHEC Center training activities. UMMS exceeds the 10% requirement of training distant from the school and this proposal supports this off-site training. The MassAHEC Network fulfills the statutory requirements of the AHEC Point of Service Maintenance and Enhancement Awards Program.
