USD Sanford School of Medicine administration to visit FARM program sites
On Thursday, Sept. 5, they will visit Mobridge Clinic, holding a plaque presentation in the lobby at 2:30 p.m. in Mobridge, S.D.
On Friday, Sept. 6, they will visit Milbank Area Hospital at 10:30 a.m. in Milbank, S.D., and hold the plaque presentation in the hospital’s conference room.
Planned attendees for the ceremonies include each site hospital’s CEO, FARM program physician coordinators and community ambassadors.
“Our rural clinical sites represent the heart and soul of the FARM program,” said Anderson. “The opportunities these communities will provide for our students will enrich their medical school experience and prepare them to deliver outstanding health care in a rural setting—or any setting.”
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.
SSOM administration visited FARM sites in Winner, Platte and Parkston in July.
