The Eastcentral and Northeast PA AHEC would like to express it's deep appreciation for the work of our preceptors, who give their time, expertise and wisdom to develop the next generation of healthcare professionals.

Preceptor Interest - To support the community-based training of primary care health professions students, the Northeast PA AHEC seeks to identify physicians who would consider precepting students. For those already hosting students, the AHEC may be able to enhance the process through a variety of preceptor education programs and administrative support for students. If you are interested in participating in this process, please complete the interest form, and our office will contact you. Click fo Preceptor Interest Form
