Area L AHEC (Rocky Mount, NC)


Rich Michael, MD

Campus Clerkship Director


Area L covers a five county, rural region in northeastern North Carolina. The ten practices used as teaching sites range from rural community health centers to larger group practices in the city of Rocky Mount. Patients are representative of the economic and ethnic populations of the region and offer a wide variety of clinical experiences. A team approach to medical care is emphasized in both the clinical and seminar portions of the rotation. Students will interact with mid-level practitioners, pharmacists, and other healthcare practitioners.  Daybacks will be held on Tuesdays.  A moderate amount of travel is required between facilities.
