Rural Health Education and Services partners with health care providers, Kansas employers and stakeholders to increase access to quality health care for the people of rural and urban underserved Kansas by advancing the health care workforce through recruitment, retention, research and education.
Our programs and services are designed to assist rural communities and health care providers alike, and we can help if you are:
Rural Health Education and Services was established in 1990 to address just those types of health care needs in rural Kansas. To accomplish our mission, Rural Health Education and Services administers three distinct programs: Kansas Bridging Plan, a loan-forgiveness program for resident physicians; Kansas Recruitment and Retention Center, a centralized, statewide program specializing in health care workforce development, retention and strategic planning; and Kansas Locum Tenens, a program that provides temporary coverage for a rural physician's medical practice. We also provide additional services including Kansas Connections, an online newsletter with a rural Kansas health care focus; Kansas Career Opportunities (KCO), the largest health care career fair in Kansas; Marketing Services, quality-oriented, cost-effective services to handle all your marketing needs; seminars for medical students; and educational updates for rural communities.
So whether you need information about job opportunities in rural health care, need temporary coverage for your rural medical practice or are seeking a health care provider to join your community, you've come to the right place! Our friendly and knowledgeable staff is ready to answer your questions and provide professional service. Please contact us and let us know how we can assist you.
