High school juniors interested in healthcare are invited to come to the UA campus for five weeks in the summer to live on the UA campus and take two college-level courses. Additionally, they get the opportunity to participate in health-related seminars and field trips and even get to shadow physicians at University Medical Center.
Studies show, students from rural areas who study medicine often return to rural settings to practice as professionals. By fostering an interest in healthcare now, RHSP seeks to improve and expand medical services in rural communities in the future.
Please share this information with your colleagues and ask them to encourage the best and brightest students to apply to this exciting program.
Application deadline is March 15! Complete eligibility requirements are included in the program brochure, flyer and are posted online.
