Purpose of the Recruitment Assistance program: Expand recruitment assistance programs for physicians, dentsits, physician assistants, nurse practitioners and nurse midwives in order to have more professionals locating in rural areas.
Our recruitment assistance program for physicians, dentists and mid-level providers has been working. Thirty-one contracts have been signed, and today, 22 of those medical professionals are still practicing in their rural communities. Philip, Belle Fourche, Hot Springs, Howard, Scotland, Flandreau, Mobridge, Gettysburg, Wagner, and 21 other communities are participating in this program, and it is making health care in rural South Dakota better. As a result, South Dakota WINS will expand the recruitment assistance program.
