The rotation has two basic components:

  1. Clinical Rotation with your Preceptor. The WMAHEC rotations expose students to a variety of practice experiences. Rotations are in the 3 western counties of Maryland: Garrett, Allegany and Washington counties and limited sites in Frederick County.

  1. Interdisciplinary Living Experience. Additional resources and activities at the AHEC are designed to enhance the understanding of rural patients from a holistic perspective and to encourage interaction with health professions students from other disciplines participating in AHEC programs.

  1. Orientation - A manual highlighting local programs and services is provided and a tour of the AHEC facilities is given. Students are given an overview of the area's demographics, health status, and health care delivery systems.

  2. Elective Sites - Students are encouraged to visit additional health care practitioners or agencies during their rotation, exposing them to rural health care delivery and community-based care. Please discuss with WMAHEC Coordinator.

  3. Community Service – Interested students can participate in community service.
