AHEC Clinical Training & Rural Rotations


Clinical training rotations are available throughout most of rural Utah for medical students, residents, pharmacy, PA, APRN and other graduate level students. Priority for rotations is based on current workforce data provided by the Utah Medical Education Council (UMEC). UMEC provides financial support for the AHEC Clinical Training and Rural Rotations program. UMEC also serves as the state's clearinghouse for practice opportunities in Utah. Visit their web site for workforce studies and current practice opportunities.

Student Instructions: Clinical rotations are available for several professions in most communities throughout rural Utah. In the comment section of the application please provide a narrative of your reason for pursuing a rotation in Utah. Priority for funding rotations is based on Utah connections and ties to the state.

All Students must complete the Online AHEC Application
