Help Communities Recruit Primary Care Providers

Our recruitment assistance program for physicians, dentists, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurse midwives has been working. Rural communities across South Dakota have successfully recruited and retained health professionals to provide primary care services in their service areas. Communities such as Philip, Belle Fourche, Hot Springs, Howard, Scotland, Flandreau, Mobridge, Gettysburg, Gregory and Wagner have benefited from this program. Communities with a population of 10,000 or less may be eligible for this opportunity.
