Colorado AHEC (COAHEC) connects the University of Colorado Anschutz Medical Campus with current and future health professionals in rural and urban medically underserved areas. COAHEC and its regions do this by providing housing for students on clinical rotations more than 40 miles from the Anschutz Medical Campus through a network of over 500 host homes.
CU Anschutz students may choose from one of these two options for housing during their clinical training rotations when their rotations are located more than 40 miles from the Anschutz Medical Campus:
COAHEC Arranged Housing
COAHEC arranged housing is offered via a cooperative program with the Anschutz Medical Campus Health Professions schools. COAHEC arranged housing is in homes within the same community a student has been placed and is vetted, the hosts and properties are inspected, and if applicable background checked. Regional housing coordinators make the arrangements and pay the homeowner.
Student Found Housing
CU Anschutz students may choose to find their own housing. This housing is not vetted by COAHEC or the Anschutz Medical Campus. The student pays for the housing in advance and requests reimbursement when the rotation has ended. Reimbursement is a maximum of $23 per night of the rotation. Students must follow reimbursement procedures and deadlines.
