About NC AHEC

NACT UK Travelling Fellowship

national association of clinical tutors, united kingdom

In 1976, John Lister, MD, of the United Kingdom and Christopher Fordham, MD, of the UNC-Chapel Hill School of Medicine created the Travelling Fellowship—an exchange program whereby AHEC-based faculty from North Carolina spent a month studying aspects of the British medical education and health services delivery system. In return, NC AHEC hosted fellows selected by the National Association of Clinical Tutors (NACT) from the UK. In 1996, the American portion of the exchange became known as the Eugene S. Mayer Fellowship thanks to contributions made in memory of the longtime NC AHEC director.
