Clinical Training

HCC Network supports training our future health care professionals at our clinics. Our providers and clinic staff serve as teachers and mentors for health professions students during their clinical training.

In an effort to promote health careers and grow the rural health care workforce, HCC partners with the West Central Missouri Area Health Education Center (AHEC) to provide learning opportunities to “grow our own” health care providers for the future needs of our rural communities. High school and undergraduate pre-health students may request to shadow a health care professional and health profession students may request a clinical rotation, internship, practicum, or other community-based learning experience.

For questions regarding shadowing or training, please contact Stephanie Taylor, AHEC Director, at​ or call 816.617.2353.

Our community-based programs include case management, counseling and assessment, health education, transportation, translation services, enrollment assistance, health and social care advocacy initiatives, access to primary care, and health IT.
HCC and its Community Health Centers serve all patients regardless of ability to pay. Discounts for essential services are offered based on family size and income. Schedule a visit: 660.259.2440.
After more than a decade and nearly 50 new employees later, it’s safe to say that the Lexington, MO-based HCC Network is a major player in Lafayette County and in rural health care in this region.
The focus of HCC is to develop and implement programs that are responsive to documented health needs of county residents, with specific health status indicators as benchmarks of progress.
