Rural Medicine Interest Group

The Rural Medicine Interest Group (RMIG) is a group designed for students interested in practicing in rural areas. All students are welcome to join, where they will learn about rural physician shortage areas and the vast opportunities LSUHSC students have to make an impact in rural healthcare. The Rural Medicine Interest Group works closely with the primary care interest groups at LSUHSC, as well as with the members and administration involved with the Rural Scholars Track.
