Minnesota Web Recruitment

The National Rural Health Resource Center (The Center) hosts the Minnesota page of 3RNet through Minnesota Web Recruitment. Minnesota Web Recruitment enables physicians, nurse practitioners and physician assistants to learn about practice opportunities throughout greater Minnesota and urban community health centers. The primary goals of Minnesota Web Recruitment are to increase the visibility of Minnesota's rural and underserved practice opportunities and to enhance overall sourcing activities for those facilities. Our Minnesota postings are always current and include detailed opportunity descriptions and direct employer contact information.

Through Minnesota Web Recruitment, The Center also offers a Contract Review service to residents, fellows, students and practicing health care professionals. The Center has been providing administrative contract reviews for over 15 years. Our review focuses on the essential elements, identifies issues and compares contract provisions with state and local standards for the specialty. The final result will be a clear, reasonable, and competitive contract that is satisfactory to both parties. If you are interested in a Contract Review, please contact Angie LaFlamme at 218-216-7022 or alaflamme@ruralcenter.org.

Key Points

For more than 20 years, The Center has witnessed the growing number of challenges facing rural and underserved communities.

Associate Members


Minnesota is committed to helping all Minnesotans obtain access to quality, affordable health care. Due to the difficulties some areas experience recruiting and retaining physicians, many communities turn to international medical graduates and J-1 Visa Waivers to fill their physician vacancies. The Minnesota Department of Health's Office of Rural Health and Primary Care developed this guide to the J-1Visa Waiver Review and Recommendation Process.
