Health Education Centers promote rural practice in primary care

A new project report from Rural and Remote Health Journal , by JD Taylor and SE Goletz, found that health education centers (AHEC) promote interest in rural practice in medical students. CHI hosts the regional AHEC in southern New Mexico, part of our efforts to promote health education in rural communities. Read the abstract and conclusion to learn how “significantly positive association between participation in medical clerkship experiences in a rural primary care setting and the intent to practice in a rural setting upon graduation.”
