Community-based clinical training experiences focus on the primary needs of the medically underserved and help in building the future capacity of the students to deliver patient services to target populations. These clinical training rotations promote and assure the distribution of the health workforce in north Florida by providing training opportunities in rural and underserved communities for medical and physician assistant students. All health professions student training activities include patient care interactions and cultivate student interest in future practice in rural or medically underserved areas.
West Florida AHEC recruits preceptors from community health centers, rural hospitals and clinics, private physician offices, residency programs and military health care facilities that host clinical rotations for students.
