In mybook®: Health
ImmunizationsDr. Smith provides complete care for the entire family including acute care, chronic disease management, prenatal and maternity care, childrens’ sick and well visits, vaccinations, adolescent medicine, on site lab work, and school, sports and DOT physicals.
Weight ManagementThis spring I will start a ‘Walk With a Doc’ effort to meet patients outside the walls of clinical healthcare. The goal is to use the outdoor environment as a gateway to conversations about health, while participating in a low-impact exercise program. My vision is to share time with patients without the confines of the office environment to walk and talk about managing chronic disease, smoking cessation, or weight loss.”
Pediatric CareWe offer complete medical care for the entire family and have a special interest in pregnancy care and pediatric care.
Primary CareIn 2004, Harvard restructured the third year clerkships to place a cohort of students in outpatient settings for the majority of their curriculum, which allows students to follow “their patients” in all health care settings. The Asheville community is well suited to this type of curriculum with its diverse specialty practices and robust primary care services (Latessa R, Beaty N, Royal K, Colvin G, Pathman DE, Heck J. Academic Outcomes of a Community-Based Longitudinal Integrated Clerkships Program. Med Teach. 2015:1-6. doi: 10.3109/0142159X.2015.1009020 [doi].).

Emergency CareKat and John wanted a baby, but with three traumatic miscarriages they had nearly given up hope. Kat was referred to MAHEC’s Women’s Health Team and on the day of her first prenatal visit Kat thought she was having another miscarriage. John told her to go to MAHEC instead of the emergency room.
NeurologyThe third year academic calendar at Asheville is comprised of two types of clinical experiences –inpatient and longitudinal outpatient. The inpatient experience is a 12-week block and includes the surgery clerkship, inpatient medicine, pediatrics, neurology, and OB.
UltrasoundA group practice offering complete obstetrical and gynecological care for women. Our office is equipped with state of the art exam rooms and ultrasound suites.
Internal MedicineStudents participate in the longitudinal portion for the remainder of the year. Each student is assigned to a community practice for the core specialties (internal medicine, OB, pediatrics, family medicine, neurology, and psychiatry), where they see a panel of their “own” continuity patients or work-ins. Students work one-on-one with their attending physician, who reviews each case and care plan with them. If their patients are admitted or referred to another provider, the student will see their patients in the hospital or accompany them to that visit as well.
General SurgeryA full-service office that provides treatment for acute illness and injuries, annual physicals, ob/gyn exams, minor surgical services, blood tests, preventative medical care, pain management, counseling, as well as care for infants and children.
GynecologyW. B. Yeats once said “Education is not the filling of a pail but the lighting of a fire.” MAHEC is dedicated to providing continuing education programs and meaningful conferences to inspire professionals. Our goal is to light that fire and empower individuals through knowledge, skills and innovative learning to deliver quality care to their patients. Our majestic campus setting in the Western North Carolina Mountains combined with state of the art facilities provides an ideal background for in person participants, our teleconferencing and web-based services allow participation from virtually anywhere. The Division of Regional Services is committed to serving our healthcare professionals and the WNC community and I am inspired to be a part the MAHEC team working together to achieve our vision.
ObstetricsMAHEC also offers a variety of 4th year medical student electives in both Family Medicine and Obstetrics and Gynecology for both in-state and out-of-state students interested in our residency programs.
Labor and DeliveryOur vision is for quality, compassionate healthcare for the people of WNC. We provide a full spectrum of healthcare services including family medicine, behavioral health, pharmacotherapy, labor and delivery, dental health, and internal medicine.
Mental HealthMAHEC's Division of Regional Services conducts regional programs designed to meet the education and training needs of health and human service professionals in allied health, dental health, medicine, mental health, nursing and pharmacotherapy. State-wide and national educational conferences are being planned, developed, and marketed. The Division's goal is to eventually have all CE programming also available on home computers and mobile devices. Collaboration and the diversity of the healthcare workforce are emphasized in providing programs and services.
PsychiatryThe current proposed state Senate budget includes an annual appropriation of funds to MAHEC to expand our mission to train healthcare providers for the western part of the state. This initiative has the potential to make a substantial health and economic impact in the region by expanding the UNC Health Sciences Campus in WNC. The plan calls for adding new residency training programs including general surgery, family medicine and psychiatry. Since 65 percent of doctors who train in residencies practice within 100 miles of the residency location at the completion of their training, WNC communities will see a benefit for years to come.
