This elective is suggested for students admitted to the College of Medicine through the Rural Medical Scholars Program and runs for one week, the summer before MS2. Students train in in-patient and out-patient community offices in host communities, working side-by-side with local physicians. Students meet with community leaders from various agencies including: local business owners, state assembly, public health, hospital administration, behavioral health and hospice. Students provide mentorship to high school students and are expected to spend a half day giving back to the community through scheduled volunteer activities.
