Application Process and Optional Enrichment Elective Requirements
“The Rural Health Scholars program was one of the reasons that I chose to attend UMASS. I have always known that I will end up settling down and practicing in a rural area. It is where I am happiest. It has been great to meet people who feel the same way.”
Students interested in pursuing Rural Health Scholars as an optional enrichment elective should complete an application as they enter medical or nursing school. They are notified of their acceptance within the first month of school. Students may apply, however, at any time during their schooling.
