Because healthcare workers typically return to practice in the area they trained, high quality community physicians interested in training the next generation of healthcare providers are continually needed.  It is West Florida AHEC’s goal that during one’s clinical training he/she will gain valuable knowledge and develop skills that will help mold his/her career.  Furthermore, if one chooses to return to practice in a region where he/she received training, West Florida AHEC is one step closer to helping improve the overall health of our service area’s population.
