RHI Activities/Rural Didactic Exposure

Students accepted into the RHI program participate in unique rural experiences during their third and fourth years. These experiences provide an opportunity to learn about local industries and daily life in the mountain state and how these factors affect health and treatment. The goal of these experiences is to offer cultural insights which may assist in communicating with future patients.
