The Rural Program was founded in 2005 as an elective track and has grown to become a core Program of the University of Colorado School of Medicine in 2021. It was founded with the goal of identifying students interested in rural practice and providing them with mentorship, additional knowledge, broad skills and rural socialization experiences to inform and encourage their interest in future rural practice. Students apply to the Rural Program as part of their secondary application to the CU School of Medicine, and are interviewed by Rural Program faculty and, if accepted for admission, are invited to join the Rural Program if they have genuine interest in rural life and work and agree to spend their core clinical year at a rural site. Approximately 10% of each medical school class of 184 is enrolled in the Rural Program. The CU SOM Rural Program is one of about 30 such programs in the U.S. and is recognized as a national leader.
Beginning in 2021, the CU School of Medicine is launching a major curriculum revision that shifts all core clinical experience into the second year and places every student in a longitudinal integrated clerkship (LIC). Students in the Rural Program serve their LIC in a rural site to which they move for the year. The Rural Program team is responsible for establishing those rural LIC sites, developing the clinical faculty in those sites and monitoring student progress and evaluating results.
In addition to the core clinical year LIC, the Rural Program team presents a weekly session of seminars and workshops to Rural Program students and provides ongoing mentoring, advising and programming in the first, third and fourth years
The Rural Program team currently consists of three physicians, a manager and two staff. The position described herein is new and is being established to fulfill the Rural Program's increased responsibility for establishing and supporting rural longitudinal integrated clerkship (LIC) sites and direct student teaching.
Students who have graduated from the Rural Track in the past 16 years enter Family Medicine residency programs at about 5 times the rate as other CU School of Medicine graduates. About 40% of our graduates practice in rural communities in multiple specialties across Colorado and the U.S. Job Summary:
