Purpose

The Rural Physician Associate Program (RPAP) is a 9-month, community-based educational experience for third-year medical students at the University of Minnesota that allows them to live and train in rural communities across Minnesota and western Wisconsin. Students will gain experience in clinical medicine, procedures, community health, and the business of medicine while working with patients of all ages in rural communities.

Each student is paired with a community, and that student will get hands-on experience in a variety of procedures and specialties. Students will see patients in clinics, hospitals, emergency rooms, nursing homes, hospice, at home, and in the community.
