Sanford School of Medicine administration students to visit FARM program sites
On July 11, they will visit Winner Regional Hospital at 2 p.m. in Winner, S.D. On July 12, they will visit Platte Health Center Avera at 10 a.m. in Platte, S.D. before visiting Avera St. Benedict’s Health Center Education Center in Parkston, S.D. at 12:30 p.m.
Planned attendees for the ceremonies include each site hospital’s CEO, FARM program physician coordinators and community ambassadors and FARM program students.
“We are eager for the opportunity to build strong, productive relationships with our outstanding FARM program communities,” said Anderson. “These visits represent important steps toward that end—and toward a healthier South Dakota.”
Designed to combat the rural health care shortage, the FARM program is a unique opportunity for select groups of third-year medical students to obtain clinical training in carefully selected rural South Dakota communities—Milbank, Mobridge, Winner, Platte and Parkston. Beginning in July of 2014, participants will spend nine intensive months working with local physicians and becoming immersed in the communities.
More FARM site visits will take place in early September 2013, including Mobridge and Milbank.
