The planning committee has given the State Offices more topics and speakers than ever before. A whole new set of breakout sessions has been added to the agenda to address the needs of NOSORH’s members. One breakout, “Which Medical Schools are High Producers of Rural Primary Care Physicians and What Factors Explain their Success?”, presented by Davis Patterson PhD, a Research Assistant Professor in the University of Washington (UW) Department of Family Medicine, will discuss new findings on (1) which medical schools throughout the U.S. are most successful at producing physicians who choose rural primary care practice and (2) what characteristics of these schools are linked to success. This presentation’s goal is to arm SORHs with information and policy options that they can share with stakeholders in their states on how to design medical education programs to ensure an adequate rural primary care workforce.

NOSORH is excited to announce a new feature at this year’s meeting! The printed program book has been replaced with a meeting app. Get ready for the roll-out by downloading the “Guidebook” app found in the app store for Apple phones or the Google Play store for Android phones. More details will be provided in the “Safe Travels” email sent prior to the Annual Meeting. We look forward to utilizing this new feature and we hope you enjoy it too!
