Clinical Rotations: Reading List


For students receiving AHEC housing support for their clinical rotations, our grant requires learners to complete a community-based experiential didactic activity in one of six core topics. You may select one article to read from the following list (see below; all articles are free full text).   Upon finishing the article, click the link in the email message you received from your regional AHEC to attest that you have completed this activity. (There is no graded assignment.)  The activity and attestation can be completed anytime during your clinical rotation but is due before vacating the housing or receiving housing stipend.
