Working in and having mentors in underserved or international contexts are two of the greatest determinants of whether a physician will practice in those contexts. Rotating with our urban or rural tract will be a highly impactful experience, and providing these rotations is one of our most rewarding activities. While on the rotation you will be immersed in the communities in which we live and serve. You will gain clinical experience (i.e. not just shadowing!) in outpatient, inpatient, and home settings.
The average day rotating with the urban track involves clinical experience (hospital and clinic) in the mornings with our residents and faculty and afternoon experiences in community and spiritual health. Students with the rural track get a full spectrum experience similar to our residents. The day begins seeing hospitalized patients then progresses to seeing patients in the clinic, ED, L&D, subspecialty clinic, nursing home, or home visits.
