The Summer Hoosier Rural Preceptorship is a summer experience for students who are enrolled in medical school in the United States during the summer between their first and second year of medical school. The purpose of the Preceptorship is to introduce medical students to rural family medicine in underserved populations in Indiana. The program is under the direction of Union Hospital's Richard G. Lugar Center for Rural Health, in partnership with Union's Family Medicine Residency and generously supported with grant funding from the West-Central Indiana Area Health Education Center (AHEC).SHRP 2016

Students who are selected receive a stipend for the program's eight-week summer experience. The program is divided into block rotations completed at physician's offices, critical access hospitals, rural health clinics, and community health organizations. These training sites expose medical students to multidisciplinary, community-based primary care teams focused on underserved populations. 

Students eligible for this program must be in good standing in a U.S. allopathic or osteopathic medical school (and have passed all exams at the end of the first year of school). An interest in rural family medicine is also important.

The 2018 Summer Hoosier Rural Preceptorship is June 4 - July 27, 2018. 
Applications for the 2018 program are due January 12, 2018.
