CELEBRATING 20 YEARS OF THE

RURAL MEDICAL
SCHOLARS PROGRAM

Rural Students Becoming Rural Doctors

The 20th class of the Rural Medical Scholars Program was admitted by The University of Alabama’s College of Community Health Sciences for the 2015-2016 academic year. The College works to address the shortage of primary care physicians in Alabama through the Rural Medical Scholars Program, which is for rural Alabama students who want to become physicians and practice in rural communities. The program includes a year of study, after students receive their undergraduate degree, that leads to a certificate in rural community health (some also obtain a master’s degree) and early admission to the University of Alabama School of Medicine. Rural Medical Scholars spend the first two years of medical school at the School of Medicine’s main campus in Birmingham and then return to the College for their final two years of clinical education.
