OHSU And UC-Davis Join Forces On Rural Health Care


If you need specialized health care and you live in a rural area, there's a good chance you've got a long drive ahead of you.  Rural areas generally do not have the health amenities of larger cities. 

The situation is about to get some attention in our region: OHSU in Portland and the University of California-Davis are teaming up.  A program called COMPADRE, short for California Oregon Medical Partnership to Address Disparities in Rural Education and Health, got a major grant from the American Medical Association to boost health care quality and physician training. 

Doctors-to-be will serve residencies in rural areas between Sacramento and Portland.  Mark Henderson at UC-Davis and Joyce Hollander-Rodriguez from OSHU are our guests.
