RPM 120: Rural Health Issues I introduces students to the professional realities of rural physicians. Students will become familiar with various pathways into the medical profession, and be guided in preparing for application to medical school. The course will include a field trip to our regional hospital and guest lectures from several practicing rural health professionals. The importance of both professionalism and self-care will be emphasized throughout the course.


Rural Health Issues V builds on the communication skills learned and practiced in previous RPM courses. Throughout year 3 of the Rural Pre-Medicine Program, students will work on a health-related rural community applied research project, which may include local and international opportunities for experiential learning.  In RPM 320, students will apply research knowledge and methodologies to create a community-based project proposal. Students will gain practical knowledge through a variety of hands-on skills such as team work, group facilitation, project planning and implementation, and teaching/learning.
