The Health Care Workforce Training Commission proposes new rules that establish initial guidelines for administration of the health care workforce development grant program
Loan repayment programs for Primary Care Physicians and Physician Assistants are made possible by the State of Oklahoma through HWTC. Additional programs are also available for Physicians, Family Medicine Residents and Physician Assistants. The programs are in exchange for establishing a medical practice in an underserved rural Oklahoma community.
HWTC administers a professional placement service for Physicians, Physician Assistants, and Advanced Practice Nurse Practitioners. There are approximately 95 communities listing current opportunities. Included are contact persons, specialties needed, incentives offered, and other pertinent information.
The programs provide assistance to Oklahoma nursing students pursuing LPN, ADN, BSN, MSN, DNP, and PhD degrees and who are interested in rural Oklahoma communities, State Teaching, Hospitals, and Nurse Training Programs across Oklahoma.
PROPOSED RULES CHANGES
HWTC thanks our partners, Tobacco Settlement Endowment Trust (TSET), Oklahoma State Medical Association (OSMA), and Blue Cross Blue Shield of Oklahoma (BCBSOK) for their sponsorships of physicians and for the HWTC Loan Repayment Program.
