The Medical College of Georgia at Augusta University partners with the Georgia Statewide AHEC (Area Health Education Center) Network for the development, coordination and maintenance
of many off campus, community based education sites. Georgia AHECs 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
There are six regional AHEC offices in Georgia. 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 from the Medical College of Georgia and other health professional programs 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.
If you have any questions about any of the community based education sites do not hesitate to contact:
