Rural and Urban Scholars in Community Health (RUSCH)
The University of Wisconsin School of Medicine and Public Health is doing its part to address the projected physician shortage.
The medical school has recently introduced three educational programs aimed at increasing the number of physicians in underserved areas, including rural and inner-city communities.
In the video below, Robert Golden, MD, dean of the UW School of Medicine and Public Health, talks about three programs that not only address society's evolving health care needs, but also fit in with the school's transformation to an integrated school of medicine and public health.
The programs are:
- The Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine (WARM)
- Training in Urban Medicine and Public Health (TRIUMPH)
- Rural and Urban Scholars in Community Health (RUSCH)
The Wisconsin Academy for Rural Medicine and Training in Urban Medicine and Public Health are part of the medical school's MD Program.
Rural and Urban Scholars in Community Health is designed to attract undergraduate students who hope to attend the UW School of Medicine and Public Health and intend to practice medicine in urban or rural health areas of Wisconsin.
