"From the Great Plains to the Ozark Mountains, there's so much to discover about Missouri! Missouri's people are about as different as the landscape—jazz-and-blues legends from Kansas City to old-time country fiddlers in the "hollers".

Missouri is rich in history and culture. American Indian warriors, such as the Osage and Missouri, and famous pioneers, such as Meriwether Lewis and William Clark, were drawn to the vast waterways of the Mississippi and Missouri rivers and the abundant land and wildlife. The thriving city life found in Kansas City and St. Louis, as well as the quiet beauty of limestone bluffs and winding rivers, make Missouri a great place to explore even today."

In partnership with the Missouri Department of Health & Senior Services and the Missouri Primary Care Association, the Missouri Health Professional Placement Services (MHPPS) is a non-profit recruiting service dedicated to rural and underserved areas of our great state!  We partner with safety-net providers and health care systems throughout Missouri to help health care professionals, like yourself, find a community that best fits your personal and professional needs. Whether it’s a scenic rural setting, dynamic urban location, or somewhere in between, we are committed to focusing on your interests.
