Educational Resources for Loan

Request a Teaching Tool

The Center for Rural Health has a number of healthcare professions educational items for loan, and we encourage their use. Our goal is to provide tools to encourage the interactive learning and grow student's interest in healthcare professions. Upon completion of using an educational resource, we ask that you please complete an evaluation. These resources are available for North Dakota facilities/organizations only.
