Rural Interprofessional Longitudinal Scholars Program (RIPLS) Information Session

March 3, 2023 @ 12:00 pm - 1:00 pm

The Rural Interprofessional Longitudinal Scholars Program (RIPLS) established in 2019 aims to create opportunities for all health professions students to understand the unique needs of rural populations. The scholars attend monthly workshops, seminars, and forums each semester to develop a deeper perspective on the challenges of providing healthcare in rural areas. As part of the program, scholars will also spend time in the summer (June and July) in a rural community in North Carolina (both virtually and in-person). They will learn how to assess community needs, engage key stakeholders, and deliver healthcare using innovative approaches. Through immersive learning, students take part in social opportunities and clinical experiences that help them envision the future of rural practice models.

RIPLS is currently recruiting the next round of scholars – we are looking for passionate students who desire to work with an interprofessional team to serve rural communities.

Applications will close on March 10th:

An optional information session for interested students will be March 3 (12pm) Via ZOOM:
