The Foundation's program, Partnerships for Training: Regional Education Systems for Nurse Practitioners, Certified Nurse-Midwives, and Physician Assistants, was designed to address shortages of primary care practitioners in medically underserved areas through development of innovative regional education models for nurse practitioners, certified nurse-midwives, and physicians assistants that emphasize training these new professionals within their own communities.This grant supports technical assistance and direction for the Partnerships for Training program. The principal objectives are to: (1) provide technical assistance to grantees as they enter into the implementation processes; (2) conduct site visits to all grantees; (3) conduct national grantee meetings; (4) establish an electronic bulletin board system which will connect all of the program participants (faculty, employer partners, students, community agencies, and others); and (5) continue disseminating information about the program to a wide professional community.
