Ithaca Free Clinic: A Report on Recommendations for Provider Recruitment Strategies
Gillott, Lauren; Guan, Bilu; Richards, Jacquelyn
A CIPA Capstone team assisted the Ithaca Health Alliance (IHA) in developing recruitment strategies for medical practitioners locally to address the need for more free clinic services. Based on interviews and background research, the team drafted a survey to recruit providers in the area. Current volunteer providers and partners were helpful resources in the creation of the survey. The team also recommended current providers establish partnerships with medical student programs and residency programs at area hospitals, develop a printed recruitment package and recruit through current community connections. Lastly, the team created an information and communications package that can be adapted for use in discussing policy issues relevant to IHA with legislators and other stakeholders.
