What is a Rural Program?
A rural program is an accredited program in health professions education and training in which students and/or trainees spend the majority of their time training (more than 50%) in a rural place. For a more complete description and an article about rural residency program definitions click here. There are currently nine (9) schools of medicine that are located in a rural community, and thirty-nine (39) medical schools with a rural track or pathway, or a rural campus, for a select number of students.
