Regional Affairs


Regional Affairs is the expansion of RUUTE into the surrounding states of Idaho, Montana, and Wyoming. The goal of this expansion is to improve medical education and training, healthcare access, and long-term socio-economic benefits for rural and underserved communities in the Mountain West. This is primarily done by increasing public knowledge of rural medicine, educating students of opportunities in the health sciences, and providing opportunities for physicians in training to return to rural areas.
