I had the opportunity to have a one hour interview about Insourced on Shore Law with Chad Malkus on Radio1240 AM (WCEM, ABC affiliate). The Eastern Shore of Maryland is rural and has a great shortage of all categories of health professionals. I’ve had the pleasure of doing clinical work in Centreville and spent most of my childhood summers on my uncle’s farm in Rock Hall.
In order to increase the number of health workers in rural communities such as those in the Eastern Shore, we need to align health professional school admissions with community needs. In some communities, math and science courses will need to be improved or “bridging programs” developed.
