Rural Faculty Development Fund

The RTT Collaborative (RTTC) is committed to sustaining health professions education of all types in rural places, with an initial focus on physician education. This restricted fund within The RTT Collaborative will be used to prepare Family Medicine faculty who live, clinically work, and teach in a rural place (using any federally accepted definition of “rural”) to become even better educators and, preferably, program directors of residency programs located in rural communities.

A personal donation from Dr. Longenecker established the fund, and contributions are encouraged to grow the fund to at least $100,000. A principal of $100,000, through annual 5% appreciation, would potentially support a single scholarship a year in perpetuity, or two scholarships a year for ~15-20 years. The fund balance as of December, 2021 is just under $65,000.
