As included in the goals and objectives for the TRUST First Summer Experience, Scholars will:

  • Enroll in the Underserved Pathway
  • Complete the Underserved Pathway Public Health Epidemiology Module.
  • Complete a Walk Around Discovery Tool to learn more about their TRUST continuity community.
  • Meet the Healthcare Team. TRUST Students will have a list of people to meet in their community: TRUST First Summer Experience Meet List

The Year One curriculum varies from campus to campus, but all TRUST Scholars:

  • Maintain contact with their community site mentor and arrange at least one return visit to their underserved site in the fall and one in the spring
  • Establish a second mentoring relationship with a UWSOM College faculty member in Seattle
  • Participate in journal club and specialized seminars
  • As funding allows, participate in national and regional rural and underserved health conferences once during their medical school career
  • Enroll in a rural health selective based on the location of their first-year campus
