This year, students spent two weeks studying rural medicine in Sedalia. To protect students and the Sedalia community against the potential spread of COVID-19, the program was held virtually with modified in-person visits. The project was made possible by the Health Resources and Services Administration (HRSA) funding the MU School of Medicine’s rural medicine programs received. This program is one of many ways that the MU School of Medicine is exposing future health care leaders to learn about rural medicine in the hope of combatting Missouri’s ongoing rural doctor shortage.
