AHEC Department Links


All of our AHEC sites offer strong clinical experience in general obstetrics and gynecology as well as exposure to some ob/gyn subspecialties.  The Department of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Carolinas Medical Center (CMC), located in Charlotte, NC, boasts an impressive tradition of service and education. The chairperson is Dr. Joseph M Ernest; the clerkship site director is Dr. Susan Bliss.  The Deparment of Obstetrics and Gynecology at Mountain AHEC (MAHEC), located in Asheville, NC, is well-rounded and dedicated to education. The chairperson is Dr. Kellett Letson; the clerkship site director is Dr. Andrea Currens.  WakeMed, located in Raleigh, NC, is a busy tertiary care center, caring for both indigent and non-indigent populations.  The obstetrical service is particularly busy there. The clerkship site directors are Dr. Angela Gantt and Dr. Ritu Sandhu.  Both CMC and MAHEC support residency programs in obstetrics and gynecology.  UNC residents do off-service months at WakeMed.
