Interested in completing a community based rotation in Northwest AHEC and need housing assistance? See http://my.ncahec.net/ AHEC Housing Online Application Process – All requests for AHEC student housing must be made through our statewide MyAHEC website. This site will instruct you to create an online account. Choose My Stuff Tab. Choose Request Housing. Select the AHEC region(s) where you will need housing and enter all the related info. The online application process requires that you apply for your own housing; a school/course coordinator will not be able to apply on your behalf.
Please Note: Effective July 1, 2013, Northwest AHEC will only provide housing for requests that are eight weeks or less. After reviewing housing needs and reviewing housing that has been provided in the past, Northwest AHEC has determined that requests greater than eight weeks do not align with/fit the intent to provide short term housing.

Northwest AHEC provides administrative and financial support for off-campus student rotations with preceptors in community settings. The health profession students included are medical students, nurse midwifery students, nurse practitioner students, physician assistant students and UNC-CH PharmD students.
In these efforts, the ORPCE will assist teachers and students in the education process, support community-based preceptors and ultimately help to create more primary care providers.
The American Academy of Family Physicians video news releases illustrate the role of family medicine in today’s health care system: The five videos highlight what family physicians do, their ability to provide effective and efficient preventive medicine, their essential role in managing the treatment of chronic diseases, their use of health information technology and the importance of a patient-centered medical home.
Our office offers preceptor development activities, implements protocols for payment of eligible preceptor sites, represent preceptor concerns to the schools and AHECs, and assists in linking preceptors to their free access of the AHEC digital library.
