This week’s featured MMU opportunity is located in Northwest Oregon. The facility has a vision to create and maintain healthy people and a healthy community by providing direct health care services to its population as well as community heath education and activities. They operate five clinics in the county which consist of school-based health centers, patient centered primary care homes, a rural health clinic and a public health clinic. The MMU participant matched with the facility will have the opportunity to work among these different locations, learning from multiple experienced providers and working with a varied patient population to ensure a well-well-rounded clinical experience.
The MMU participant matched with this facility will provide a wide range of primary care services to patients of all ages developing a solid foundation for their practice future. They will get to work in a great variety of sites and services all while working alongside other providers for support when needed. The participant will also be supported and trained through our ThriveAP program curriculum
ThriveAP gives NPs and PAs a tool for increasing their clinical skill set even after graduation with practical, actionable information.
