Support for Practicing Health Professionals

The AHEC Offices of Regional Primary Care Education facilitate the training of health science students with community-based healthcare providers (preceptors). As part of their mission, the ORPCEs provide educational support to student training sites and assist preceptors with their own educational development to ensure quality student experiences consistent with the curricular goals of the health science schools. ORPCE directors can help preceptors access these and other training resources:
