Accredited Rural Physician Residency Programs
To include or exclude program types, simply use the filter to the right of the map to turn them on or off. Programs in specialties other than family medicine that are located in the same place are listed together, and zooming in on the map will make it easier to differentiate programs that are located near one another.
Note: A Rural Track Program (RTP1 by ACGME terminology; previously called an integrated RTT) residency is a separately accredited program bridging urban and rural locations with >50% training in a rural place; an Urban Program with a Rural Track mimics a Rural Track Program, but is not separately accredited (also called ‘IRTT-like’ or ‘RTP2’ by the ACGME). Family Medicine programs are identified with the location of the Family Medicine Practice (FMP); other specialties are categorized by the site of the primary participating hospital. To determine if any street address or zip code is rural by federal definitions, visit Am I Rural? https://www.ruralhealthinfo.org/am-i-rural The RTT Collaborative considers a place rural if it qualifies as rural by any two federal definitions. The Center for Medicare and Medicaid Services (CMS) only uses a CBSA definition and some rural programs by our definition may not qualify for ‘rural’ treatment in funding.
