Why Train Rural
Rural physician training offers many advantages for medical students seeking in-depth residency experiences and unmatched opportunities in preparation for rural, underserved urban or international practice.
Broad Scope of Practice
Rural physicians are competent in a wide range of treatments, procedures and settings.
Rural training is more apprentice-like and hands-on, with greater continuity in faculty, staff, patient and community interaction than training in many if not most urban places.
Capturing the Best Training
Benefiting from the best of both worlds, rural training track students and residents have access to small rural community practices as well as some of the most advanced healthcare facilities in the U.S.
