Health Science Student Training
Health science students from many North Carolina colleges and universities studying allied health, dentistry, medicine, nursing, public health, pharmacy, and social work receive part of their training under AHEC auspices in community hospitals, physician’s offices, rural health centers, public health departments, mental health centers, and other health-related settings. The nine regional AHECs enable statewide community training for health professionals and reverse a trend toward shortages and uneven distribution of health care practitioners in the state's rural areas.
