COMPADRE

California Oregon Medical Partnership to Address Disparities in Rural Education and Health (COMPADRE)

COMPADRE is a multifaceted program that aims to reduce health disparities by transforming the physician workforce – to be better prepared, more equitably distributed and more deeply connected to underserved communities.

More specifically, COMPADRE will:

  1. Fundamentally change how learners are selected into UME and GME
  2. Redesign the UME to GME transition so learners gain first-hand experience in their future clinical learning environments
  3. Better prepare residents to care for populations in under-resourced settings
  4. Enhance well-being by nurturing meaningful longitudinal relationships within a thriving learning community
  5. Reduce regional health disparities.

If you are a student with an interest in rural medicine, specifically Northern California or Oregon, please contact us for further information about this innovative program.  Selected candidates will have the opportunity to move more directly and efficiently from college /university to medical school and to residency.
