Our tagline, Recruit, Train, and Retain, is supported through the work we do with our preceptors. Staff at Area L AHEC serve health science schools by providing resources and potential preceptors to health science schools across the state. We support preceptors and assist students and schools in the following ways:
Health Science Schools
Area L AHEC staff work with university course directors and clinical coordinators to assist with finding potential preceptors within the five-county (Edgecombe, Halifax, Nash, Northampton, and Wilson Counties) region of Area L AHEC.
Area L AHEC staff supports preceptors through preceptor development activities and access to the AHEC Digital Library (ADL). We also serve as a preceptor advocate in local and statewide discussions.
Students are supported through
- Information technology assistance
- Library Services assistance
- Local educational seminars and workshops
- Student housing
- Assistance with site identification
Area L AHEC maintains 7 apartments in Rocky Mount, Roanoke Rapids, and Wilson to serve the needs of students rotating within the region.
