Education Health Center Initiative
Share |


New models of training primary care physicians and health care professionals in health centers are necessary to ensure adequate health workforce to staff our nation's safety net clinics.


The Vision

  • Break down barriers to access so every American has a patient-centered medical home

The Challenges

  • A shortage of family physicians and other health care professionals in health centers which could lead to the collapse of the health safety net serving the most vulnerable populations
  • Lack of secure funding, a threat to the survival of family medicine residency programs and other clinical programs

Our Solutions

  • EHCI Offers consulting services to Community Health Centers for a range of health professionals. We can help achieve your goals with innovative workforce solutions.
  • We provide consulting services for Family Medical Residency Programs, Nurse Practitioner Programs, and Physician Assistant Programs

The Partners

  • Community health centers and family medicine residencies
  • The Education Health Center Initiative (EHCI) is a regional grassroots coalition to support Family Medicine Residencies and Community Health Centers who are interested in the creation or expansion of an educational health center program, most specifically a Teaching Health Center.
  • NWRPCA is proud to collaborate with its organizational partner—the Community Health Association of Mountain/Plains States, to sponsor and support the Education Health Center Initiative.
