Rural Summer Immersion Program

The Rural Summer Immersion Program took place June 3-14, 2019. The goal of the rural immersion program was multifaceted and provided current healthcare students a unique opportunity to:

  • Learn about healthcare in rural hospitals and other care facilities
  • Discover advanced telehealth capabilities
  • Work with community-based organizations
  • Navigate interdisciplinary teams
  • Address opioid misuse in rural communities
  • Experience life in small towns and rural areas

Such opportunities serve to foster a connection between the students and the people and atmosphere of the rural community, optimistically resulting in their intent to live and work in an underserved area upon graduation.
