Online Course: Health Care Work in Small Communities

This online course and discussion group will look at how health care in small communities differs in nature from large-scale health care. It is designed for health care practitioners who are currently working in, or planning to work in small, rural towns, or other small communities, and who would like to share ideas and ask questions.

The discussion will include topics such as

  • boundaries
  • affordable workspaces
  • in-home vs. private offices
  • bartering
  • advertising
  • small-town social dynamics
  • patient privacy vs. building support networks
  • housecalls
  • sliding scales
