The Targeted Rural Underserved Track (TRUST) curriculum is a focused medical school experience in rural and underserved healthcare. Its goal is to produce physicians committed to practice in the underserved areas of the WWAMI region.
TRUST scholars have an opportunity to practice with a mentor in a rural or small community health center for one or two weeks prior to their first year of medical school. They will return to their site or a similar community site for continued experiences over the course of their education.
In addition to mentored community learning in underserved locations, TRUST scholars benefit from continuous contact with an assigned college mentor, advising from the TRUST staff, and enrollment in key programs and courses.
