General Comments
Evidence has shown that resident physicians who train in health center settings are nearly three times as likely to practice in underserved settings after graduation. They are 3.4 times as likely to work in a health center, when compared to residents who did not train in health centers. One in five West Virginians -- about 373,000 patients -- now get their primary care through the state's 28 community health centers. NOTE: AH THC will provide an annual signing bonus and a monthly housing allowance. Posted salaries are estimated. Inquire for contractual amounts and a benefits summary.
