The Southern Kentucky AHEC’s clinical education department facilitates clinical rotations for health professions students in our region.
This includes placement of students with preceptors, introducing students to the community, and coordination of housing as needed.
Placements are made primarily for students from the University of Kentucky and the University of Louisville.
