Abstract

This article describes a community-academic partnership that led to the development of a nurse-managed clinic (NMC) in 1996 in a rural Indiana area designated by the state as a medically underserved area (MUA) and a health professional shortage area (HPSA). Application of the community development model in faculty practice is described in relation to the clinic. The project is ongoing; lessons learned to date, which have implications for others involved in faculty practice, are described.
