History of WI-ORH
The Wisconsin Office of Rural Health (WI-ORH) was established in 1975, within the University of Wisconsin's School of Medicine and Public Health, to address shortages of health services in rural areas. As the WI-ORH evolved, it developed a strong health professional recruitment program and worked with many programs at the federal and state levels to bring health care services to underserved areas.
