The ND Primary Care Office, in partnership with the UND Center for Rural Health, host or attend a number of recruitment events each year.  While COVID-19 has delayed or postponed some of these events since 2020, our team continues to monitor health risks and adjust to virtual options when needed.

In a normal year, these are the events to look forward to:
