Summer Rural Externship (SRE)

The Summer Rural Externship is a 2 credit hour course. The 2-week rotation is designed to reinforce a student’s interest in a rural practice and to prepare the student for their rural clerkships. This clerkship is comprised of a clinical office experience in a small rural community and includes community service and interdisciplinary shadowing.

Rural Medical Track students are highly encouraged to enroll in the Summer Rural Externship. To apply students must complete the application and indicate preferences for dates/locations/preceptors(if known), and include a one page essay explaining why they wish to participate. Space is limited and based on first come/first served for preceptor availability, so enroll early.
