AHEC student housing is short-term lodging for health sciences students who are completing community-based rotations in Georgia. Students are not required to use AHEC housing.

We are pleased that you will be completing a portion of your medical education in a Georgia community.  Community based training will give you a unique opportunity to experience health care in a real world setting and interact one-on-one with your community based preceptor and patients. Georgia AHECs can assist with the following:  
  • Housing or housing stipends (in metro Atlanta)
  • Travel stipends (if no housing or housing stipend is provided)
  • Support for students while on rotation
  • Orientation and information about the local community

Note:  Funding for AHEC housing locations, housing stipends and travel stipends are based on state and federal dollars as well as community partnerships and grant opportunities.  Changes to housing availability, housing locations, and stipend allotments can occur during the academic year based on those funding sources.    Each AHEC office staffs a preceptor coordinator that works to develop partnerships with community based health care practitioners to provide necessary clinical training sites for medical students and other health professional students in the state.  The preceptor coordinators in each of the AHEC regions will be your contact for assistance with information regarding preceptors, housing support, travel stipends, community resources and procedures specific to your site assignment. 

All students must complete the AHEC Student Profile online. Please visit the web link: https://formstack.io/35D8E
