California Oregon Medical Partnership to Address Disparities in Rural Education and Health

COMPADRE is a multifaceted program that aims to reduce health disparities by transforming the physician workforce – to be better prepared, more equitably distributed and more deeply connected to underserved communities.

More specifically, COMPADRE will:

  1. Fundamentally change how learners are selected into UME and GME
  2. Redesign the UME to GME transition so learners gain first-hand experience in their future clinical learning environments
  3. Better prepare residents to care for populations in under-resourced settings
  4. Enhance well-being by nurturing meaningful longitudinal relationships within a thriving learning community
  5. Reduce regional health disparities.
