3. Be proactive.

To find out how to start a rural medicine interest group at your medical institution, see Dr. Robert Bowman's Web site on "Starting a Rural Student Interest Group." The site provides handouts and other sources of information that may be used by students interested in rural medicine.

See how medical students in the North Carolina Student Rural Health Coalition make an impact on rural health care by serving the needs of their rural community. View their streaming video that shows a typical day in the Garysburg Clinic.
