Student Rotations & Housing
The Office of Regional Primary Care Education (ORPCE) at MAHEC facilitates quality, community-based primary care education for health science students enrolled in programs associated with NC Area Health Education Centers. Our focus is to further primary care education for physician, physician assistant, nurse practitioner, and pharmacy students in ambulatory community sites, especially in rural and underserved areas, as well as to provide support services for preceptors and associated health science schools.
ORPCE provides short-term housing (less than 60 days) for health professions students during their community clinical experiences. Our office is a liaison between health sciences schools and preceptors in Buncombe, Cherokee, Graham, Haywood, Henderson, Jackson, Macon, Madison, McDowell, Mitchell, Polk, Rutherford, Swain, Transylvania, and Yancey counties.
