Rural Medicine Programs
The rural medicine programs are optional clinical experiences that allow students at all stages of training to experience family medicine in a rural setting. The definition of “rural” is defined as a city or town of 25,000 or less. Stipends funded by the Alabama Family Practice Rural Health Board are available for students traveling to rural areas.
The Pathway Program is a four week clinical experience that is provided for pre-matriculation, MS1 and MS2 students. It is facilitated by our rural community volunteer preceptors. Selection for this program is by application only. A stipend is provided for the student through a grant from the Alabama Family Practice Rural Health Board. To learn more, contact us here.
