Rural Allied Health Network Training (RAhNT)

The Rural Allied Health Network Training Partnership (RAhNT) was established in 2015 after being authorized by the Public Health Service Act and funded by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) and the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services (HHS) to support the recruitment, clinical training, and retention of Allied Health professionals in rural communities.

 

The RAhNT Partnership’s program overall goals are as follows:

  1. Improving the viability of the network partners by increasing recruitment and retention of Allied Health professionals within their rural communities and other non-network rural communities;
  2. Providing Allied Health students with training opportunities and experiences within culturally competent, community focused rural hospitals/clinics, which will build and reinforce ties within these rural communities;
  3. Establishing a replicable model network approach to training Allied Health students in rural areas;
  4. Expanding the uptake of industry-validated credentials that are competency based, empowering job seekers and reducing barriers to hiring; and
  5. Establishing partnerships between the network and community organizations that can serve as an ongoing vehicle for addressing workforce challenges.
