Award Description: The main goal of the Ohio SEARCH Program is to improve access to care for underserved populations by developing culturally competent, community-responsive primary care providers who deliver high-quality care through interdisciplinary practice in rural and urban communities. The main objectives of the Program are: 1) to establish a network of key collaborators representing academic institutions, community-based safety net providers, professional associations, and state agencies that share a common goal of strengthening systems of care for the underserved by expanding linkages across health professions disciplines and between communities and academic programs; 2) to provide opportunities for health professions students and residents to participate in interdisciplinary clinical and community experiences with preceptors at a variety of safety net sites in rural and urban underserved areas; and 3) to pilot community-based training in the Patient-Centered Medical Home model as a way of preparing participating students/residents and preceptors for this approach to providing comprehensive primary care for children, youth, and adults.
