Recruitment and Retention of Rural Healthcare Providers

 
 
 

Clinical Education

Clinical Education intern

Overview

Supporting the recruitment and retention of rural primary care providers is a focus of the Maine AHEC Network. Evidence-based strategies include providing health profession students with positive clinical experiences in rural communities and nurturing health professions students from rural communities who are most likely to return to those communities to practice.

 
 

Community Health Rotations in Aroostook County

Community Health Rotation for UNE College of Osteopathic Medicine Students

The Maine AHEC Network coordinates the selective mandatory four-week Maine Community Health Rotation (CHR) for third year UNE COM medical students. With more than 60 preceptors (clinical physician-educators) in Maine, students enhance their knowledge and exposure to the unique and exciting challenges of practicing primary care, especially in rural underserved communities. 

Enhanced Community Health Rotation Program

The Maine AHEC Network, in collaboration with the Northern Maine AHEC has developed an “enhanced” community health rotation to attract students interested in rural health and primary care and create a rich experience that will increase the chances that students will make the decision to practice in rural Maine.
