Rural Community Health Scholars

Exceptional leadership in health care

Rural Community Health Scholars is a program designed with one goal in mind: to enhance your ability to create change and reshape the status quo for health care in your community. Throughout this program, students will engage in clinical, didactic, and community-based activities in rural and underserved areas of WV to build their skill set and positively impact the lives of West Virginians.

Rural Community Health Scholars is a two-year program offered to only 75 of West Virginia’s top health professions students from institutions across the state; this program aims to provide supplemental and interprofessional educational experiences to those interested in practicing in rural or underserved communities.
