This evaluation focused on three priority areas: recruitment, training, and retention of health professionals to serve Ohio’s Medicaid population. Information was supplemented by data the schools provided in August 2016. A survey was distributed to preceptors to better understand the preceptor’s discipline and the type of community-based site. Internal and external project reviews were conducted by examining past project proposals and final reports since SFY 2012 to better understand the types of activities that were unique to each institution.
