The RTT Collaborative

in rural health professions education and training

Growing Our Own...Together

Training In Rural Places

Visit the rural training programs that are a part of this Collaborative. Also, be sure to explore rural physician training opportunities for medical students and residents, where “the scope is broad, and the focus is you.” Even if you are uncertain about your eventual practice intentions, training rural is an option you should seriously consider.

For Students

Putting Rural Programs On The Map

The RTT Collaborative espouses a “place-based” approach to health professions education, and promotes rurally located, community-embedded programs as well as rurally focused programs that strategically place trainees in rural communities for educational experiences and services.
