Students may be assigned to local or distant community-based sites at various times throughout the four year curriculum. The third year Family Medicine Rural Clerkship is a required rural experience. Students are responsible for their own transportation.
Failure to secure transportation may result in delays in your training or inability to complete the requirements of the medical degree program.
Students will be informed of the policy during medical school orientation.
