As a part of the School of Medicine's commitment to addressing physician maldistribution in rural Missouri counties, faculty created three longitudinal programs to solidify student interest in rural practice.
One of these programs is the MU-AHEC Summer Community Program. This program, coordinated by the MU-AHEC program office, is a four to eight-week experience where students apply and are selected between their first and second years of medical school. This program combines a preceptorial experience with rural living. Students are taught in a rural practice by an approved rural practitioner and sponsored by a rural local hospital. The local hospitals supply a stipend per student, as well as room and board where possible. Students completing a four-week experience receive a $1,000 stipend; for a six-week experience receive a $1,500 stipend; for an eight-week experience, students receive a $2,000 stipend. Local coordination and some housing is provided by the Missouri AHEC centers.
