Colorado Coalition for the Medically Underserved (CCMU) had been impressing us with their excellent infographic series highlighting different ways that Colorado could improve access to medical care across the state. This month’s graphic shows the difference in access to care for people living in rural and urban areas.
What does this mean for health care job seekers in Colorado? For one thing, it means that Community Health Centers (CHCs) in rural Colorado are particularly interested in you. It also means that you have the opportunity to live in some of the most beautiful areas of Colorado – whether you’re interested in the airy agrarian feel of the Eastern Plains, or the rugged high-altitude charm of the Rocky Mountains. And it means that the communities you serve are more likely to have a small-town feel where you have the opportunity to connect with patients and their families.
If that sounds like a good fit to you, check out the CHAMPS Job Opportunities Bank and search for jobs at CHCs in rural areas. Some of the CHCs that have sites in rural counties include:
- Dove Creek Community Health Center,
- High Plains Community Health Center,
- Mountain Family Health Centers,
- Northwest Colorado Visiting Nurses Association,
- Olathe Community Clinic,
- Plains Medical Center,
- Salud Family Health Centers,
- Uncompahgre Medical Center and,
- Valley-Wide Health Systems.
