Underserved & Rural Student Interest Experience (URISE)

Underserved & Rural Student Interest Experience (URISE) 

In 2020, RUUTE & Regional Affairs launched the Underserved & Rural Interested Student Experience (URISE). This medical student interest group works to provide medical students information and education about being a medical student working in rural and underserved areas. URISE leadership serves as a liaison between the student voice and RUUTE and hosts regular events to share information with the student body regarding RUUTE experiences and opportunities. In addition, URISE members often provide mentorship to other students, including participants in the Summer Undergraduate Research Experience.

Time Commitment: 1-2 hours per month

Featured Students are: John Tokle, Sam Johnson, Joseph Lovelace, Katherine Wilcox, Drew Jones, and Charlotte Jones, the youngest honorary URISE member.

Since its formation, URISE has provided a variety of events for students to participate in, including outreach efforts to share RUUTE programs with other medical students and socials such as an end-of-the-year picnic.
