The MU Rural Track Pipeline Program was created in 1994-1995 to improve the supply and distribution of physicians in rural Missouri. The program consists of four distinct, but related, curriculum and clinical components, providing students with ongoing exposure to rural medicine. Components include the Bryant Scholars Pre-Admission Program, the Summer Community Program, the Rural Track Clerkship Program and the Rural Track Elective Program.
Over the past 25 years the Rural Track Program has successfully produced rural physicians for the state. Approximately 57 percent of participants practice in a rural location and 67 percent of Bryant Scholars practice in Missouri.
With your gift, you can help sustain the Rural Track Pipeline Program and support the MU School of Medicine’s mission to address the rural physician shortage and meet the health care needs of rural Missourians.
