Ashland Site – Midwifery, Rural, & Native American Focus

Site Coordinator: Brad Gingras 
10 students

The Ashland site gives students the opportunity to see a wide variety of rural health care settings, including women’s health, midwifery, acute care, public health, tribal clinics, and others in the Northwoods and Chequamegon Bay region. A diverse group of practitioners will present and discuss the challenges and rewards of working in rural health in far northern Wisconsin, as well as culturally appropriate care for Anishinaabe (Ojibwe) populations. Students learn about the economics, history and unique nature of this area.

Students will be offered enrollment after the application deadline.
