Programs and Services / Recruitment and Retention
The focal point of recruitment and retention is primary care providers: family practitioners, internists, pediatricians, obstetrician/gynecologists, psychiatrists, psychologists, licensed clinical social workers, dentists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners, and certified nurse midwives.
Strengthening our health center workforce is a priority during the current and upcoming healthcare reform changes.
