    1. Meet all minimum requirements for consideration for regular admission at the School of Medicine
    2. Be a legal resident of the state of Alabama
    3. Have grown up in a rural area of Alabama

“Rural” Defined
The term "rural" in the context of the RMP is defined as any non urban area of Alabama. This broadly includes any area outside the metropolitan areas of Birmingham, Dothan, Gadsden, Huntsville, Montgomery, and Mobile.  Some parts of the state are both rural and urban so occasionally questions arise about whether an area qualifies as rural. If you are unsure if the location where you grew up meets the criteria for the RMP, please contact us.
