Connecting dedicated individuals to our Health Centers
Facing increasing competition for a high-performing, mission-driven workforce, community
and migrant health centers (C/MHCs) must pursue innovative training, recruitment, and
retention strategies. The Workforce Development program is dedicated to supporting and
developing the growth of the clinical and administrative workforce at C/MHCs, and helping to
make Region X C/MHCs both Providers and Employers of Choice in their communities.
NWRPCA connects individuals to and within C/MHCs through the Workforce Development program. Current opportunities include:
Workforce Resources for Health Centers
- Peer to Peer Networking through the Human Resources Google Group
- Career Center: An online clinical and administrative job postings board for Region X C/MHCs.
- Precept a Medical Student: Clinical Precepting opportunities through AT Still/NWRPCA Campus for CHC MD and DOs
- Education Health Center Initiative(EHCI): NWRPCA and the Community Health Association of Mountain/Plains States (CHAMPS), the Region VIII Primary Care Association, provide financial and operational consulting services to help develop and expand primary care residency programs at C/MHCs across the United States. EHCI also collaborates with Feldesman Tucker Leifer Fidell LLP (FTLF) to offer legal services or projects. Through the A.T. Still program and EHCI, NWRPCA is “growing its own” health care workforce to meet the challenges and demands of the 21st century.
- NWRPCA-A.T. Still University Campus: An innovative C/MHC-based osteopathic medical school campus administered and managed by NWRPCA, hosting clinical rotations and capitalizing on other partnership opportunities available on behalf of students. This model addresses the country’s workforce shortage by training future physicians in rural and urban underserved communities through hands-on clinical experiences directly at C/MHCs, hospitals, and other clinics.
