Are you a nurse practitioner thinking about your career path?

Join us for a 3-day all inclusive tour of Upstate New York to explore the opportunities!

The "Take A Look" program aims to expose healthcare professionals in training to practice opportunities in Upstate New York communities. These guided tours are intended to encourage healthcare professionals, like yourself, to "take a look" and learn about Upstate New York hospitals, medical staffs, communities and cultures through hospital and ambulatory care site visits. We want Upstate to be top of mind when you begin your residency and job search!

Upon arrival, participants will be transported on a guided tour of each community and introduced to local physicians, nurses and health care leaders. All travel expenses, including transportation, meals and two- nights hotel accommodations will be provided.

But act fast! Each tour is limited to a small group to allow for maximum interaction. Reserve your spot now and enjoy the beauty of fall in Upstate NY!

What is expected of me once on the tour?
Participants are expected to participate in every tour activity (visits to outpatient practices, hospitals, local community attractions, and meals). This is an interactive event. Participants are encouraged to ask questions and learn as much as possible about practice opportunities and community engagement.
Our future success depends on you! Each participant will also be expected to complete an exit survey within one week following the conclusion of the Tour.

How will I be reimbursed for my travel expenses?
IHA staff will electronically send each participant a reimbursement form within one week following the tour.
