Rural Medical Track

The Rural Medical Track prepares medical students for a rural primary care residency and a successful practice in rural or underserved Oklahoma. The RMT offers unique learning opportunities for motivated students to fully develop their skills, knowledge and abilities to succeed in a challenging practice environment.

A key facet of the RMT is rural-based clinical education. Beginning with a rural physician shadowing experience after the first year of medical school, students in the Rural Medical Track have the opportunity to complete most of their required clinical education in a rural setting. Students work side-by-side with rural physicians learning the skills and performing the tasks necessary for a successful rural practice.
