2020 Student Summit on Rural Health Application

Established in 2018, the Student Summit on Rural Health represents a major collaboration between the three medical schools in the state of Arkansas. It brings together rurally interested students from the Arkansas College of Osteopathic Medicine, New York Institute of Technology College of Osteopathic Medicine at Arkansas State University and the University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences to not only learn together, but to also share their perspectives and begin building up a network of future rural providers.

 First recommended by student volunteers at the 2018 Rural Health Summit, the Student Summit is a chance for future physicians to weigh in on the role they see for themselves in rural communities, as well as what their ideal rural community would be like. They will share with each other and with their school leaders concerns they see facing their field and the things they are concerned about when looking to their future. This summit gives the students a chance to work together as they never have before; building a brand new network of rural-focused medical students here in Arkansas with mentorship from currently practicing rural physicians.

Application deadline for the 2020 Student Summit on Rural Health is March 6, 2020.  Accepted applicants will be notified no later than March 13, 2020.  If you have any questions about attending the Student Summit on Rural Health, please contact Jessica Bursk at jlbursk@uams.edu or (501) 686-5260.
