Indiana Rural Workforce Innovation Network (IRWIN)
The overarching goal of the Indiana Rural Workforce Innovation Network (IRWIN) is to improve the quality of health care services and strengthen the rural health care system in Indiana by improving the recruitment, clinical training, certification, and retention of health sciences professionals in rural Indiana. There are three core components of IRWIN: (1) a clinical rotation program for two cohorts of 15 students each within the targeted disciplines of Medical Laboratory Technology and Diagnostic Medical Sonography; (2) a rural health elective course offered by Ivy Tech Community College; and (3) job placement assistance for health science graduates. This is accomplished through a partnership with the Indiana Rural Health Association, Ivy Tech Community College, and the Rural Health Innovation Collaborative funded through a HRSA Office of Rural Health Policy grant #G04RH28695.
