Still University and the National Association of Community Health Care Centers in the development of a medical school designed to train primary care physicians for rural and underserved communities.“The School of Osteopathic Medicine is a unique medical school comprised of 10 community campuses nationwide with each providing a venue for contextual learning,” Reynolds said. “Immersing the students in rural practice environments enhances learning by affording students the opportunity to connect theory to clinical application, making them clinically culturally adept physicians with a unique knowledge of rural populations.“Most medical students don’t have these clinical opportunities in their second year of medical school.
