The Healthcare Travelling Roadshow is a grassroots initiative to address rural healthcare workforce shortages.
Goals of the Health Care Travelling Roadshow:
1. Showcase healthcare careers as options for rural students.
Formal and informal presentations are done by current healthcare students in rural focused training programs.
During presentations, local rural students examine a variety of healthcare equipment and have personal conversations with healthcare students.
2. Showcase the rural community as a career option for healthcare students.
The rural community hosts visiting students, introducing them to the medical community and facilities, the broader community, and the recreational opportunities that exist.
3. Provide an interdisciplinary experience for the healthcare students.
Healthcare training programs tend to be taught in isolation. Activities such as the Roadshow provides healthcare students the opportunity to present and interact interprofessionally.
