"Education and Training" is now
Learning Connections!Learning Connections is a multiple-partner initiative to provide world-class education and training, based on approved workplace competencies, for community health center staffs and boards.
To carry out this initiative, new curriculum is constantly being developed. In addition to sessions at our annual conferences, we offer a variety of stand-alone trainings, both face-to-face and via distance learning.
As conferences, trainings and webinars are developed and presented, we archive audio and video recordings for future use in our Learning Resources section. In addition, we are happy to announce upcoming training opportunities offered by all of our Learning Connections partners.
Education in the health center world includes opportunities to train in osteopathic medicine through our SOMA/NWRPCA regional campus in Portland, OR. And, in an effort to address the tremendous primary care provider shortage in the Northwest, we partner with the University of Washington Department of Family Medicine, the University of Washington Family Medicine Residency Network, and Community Health Association of Mountain Plains States to sponsor the Education Health Center Initiative. We also offer opportunities to precept an osteopathic student in a community health center.
