This grant provides funding to the Health Education Foundation for Eastern North Carolina to support five fellows in MedServe’s pilot implementation in North Carolina. MedServe is a service-learning program pairing recent college graduates and primary care practices serving rural communities. MedServe fellows spend two years serving these practices in clinical roles (e.g. medical assistant) that help the fellows both gain health career experience that may strengthen their graduate school applications in health care fields and meet host clinics’ entry-level personnel needs. MedServe aids clinics with fellow recruitment, and coordinates fellow health career training. Golden LEAF dollars will be used to support five fellows (stipends, benefits, travel and training), personnel, and other program-related costs. Clinics pay 50% of the cost of the fellow stipends.
