AHEC Site Coordinators
There are four different AHEC regions. Community Site Coordinators (AHEC Health Professions Student Coordinators) will contact students in the weeks leading up to the start of the rotation. Some will maintain contact throughout the rotation and visit students at their site. AHEC arranges housing for students when needed for the clerkship. AHEC coordinators:

  • Arrange student housing (in areas where housing is provided) and help settle students into housing upon arrival in rural communities;
  • Are the first point of contact for preceptors regarding medical student scheduling and clerkship curriculum;
  • Recruit new preceptors;
  • Maintain a close working relationship with MUSC clerkship faculty;
  • Introduce students to practice, hospital, community, community resources;
  • Are a constant resource and point of contact for community/practice projects (in some areas, students may work along side site coordinators on established projects, i.e. Winnsboro);
  • Provide guidance in arranging patient home visits;
  • Offer limited technology assistance (often student must be referred to student coordinators);
  • Are ALWAYS available to provide support and assistance to students and preceptors.
