Increasing number of healthcare workers
Workforce Issue Addressed
Training individuals to work in a healthcare profession
The Niles Community Health Center of the Cassopolis Family Clinic Network hosts 4th year University of Michigan Dental interns. The interns see patients and provide family dentistry on a rotation at Niles CHC for two weeks out of every six weeks. The goal of this partnership is to recruit dental interns to come work at Cassopolis once they get their degree. In the short-term the dental interns increase the number of dental providers at Niles CHC which supports the workforce there.
