New Clinician Retention Project

SFCCC, as host of the San Francisco Area Health Education Center (AHEC), is working to improve the retention of clinicians working in underserved communities.  We have partnered with the Office of Statewide Health Planning and Development (OSHPD) and the California AHEC Program to support National Health Service Corps (NHSC) Loan Repayment and State Loan Repayment Program (SLRP) participants serving in the Bay Area.  We will offer services designed to encourage these individuals to continue to work in an underserved community upon completion of their NHSC or SLRP assignment.  Activities over the next year will likely include a series of webinars on topics of interest to the participants, opportunities for social and professional networking, and community service recognition.
