What previous participants are saying:
“It was genuinely a blast getting to know students from the other medical schools and establishing lifelong connections and friendships.”
“Going out to the clinics and getting to know people from the communities made me see a side of Arkansas and rural medicine I wouldn’t have seen otherwise.”
“This trip really brought the “home” feeling that I was missing since I moved to Arkansas.”
“Being able to sit down and have dinner with physicians in a more personal setting was the most impactful part of this trip. Hearing their stories and perspectives was invaluable.”
“I now feel much more inclined to consider rural practice as part of my career one day.”
