The Integral Role of Rural Residency Programs ft. Lori Rodefeld
In episode 6, I enjoyed speaking with Lori Rodefeld, Director of Rural GME Development and Support for the Wisconsin Collaborative for Rural GME (WCRGME), about the importance of rural residency and fellowship training programs. Lori dove into misconceptions about rural programs, why applicants should seriously consider them, how hospitals can establish rural training programs, the role of rural programs in mitigating the impending physician shortage, and much more.
Lori Rodefeld is the Director of Rural GME Development for a statewide collaborative in Wisconsin (WCRGME). She provides Wisconsin rural hospitals with technical assistance in development of GME and supports urban programs interested in development of rural training or pathways. In addition to her work at WCRGME, she has 10 years of experience in medical education leadership which includes serving as the Manager of Medical Education at the Monroe Clinic where she developed a rural family medicine residency, emergency medicine fellowship, hospitalist fellowship, and medical student program.
