Horseshoe Farm provides clinical rotation opportunities for medical students, medical residents, nursing students, social work students, and other health professions students (Greensboro Site Only).

Rotating students and residents have the opportunity to work in clinical settings with Dr. Dorsey and his colleagues.  These experiences are complemented by opportunities to learn about and serve in Horseshoe Farm's community based programs for seniors, adults, and children.  Clinical experiences include geriatric and adult inpatient and outpatient mental health programs. Experiences at Horseshoe Farm include service in innovative support, day, and housing programs for seniors and adults, and tutoring, mentoring, and enrichment programs for children.

Through their experiences, students gain a greater understanding of how clinical practice and community based work can be blended to improve health outcomes, improve quality of life, improve population health, and strengthen local communities. They also learn about community based non-profit work, innovative approaches to supporting vulnerable adults and children, biopsychosocial models of care, team approaches to care, and rural healthcare.

Comfortable shared housing in Greensboro is available to students and residents.

Please email to inquire about available spots and scheduling.
