Comments from Students: 

"Dr. Smith very quickly assessed my capabilities and threw me into his practice with a good deal of autonomy. He not only respected my input with the patients I saw but even sought my take on other clinical pictures. He is exactly the reason rural rotations are so desirable. I don't think I ever could have had the experience and the relationship with my preceptor and his community that I had here."

"Physicians that really care about your education and exposing you to as many experiences and problems as possible."

"I was able to see a variety of patients in a clinic environment and was
able to learn a great deal from a few talented, caring physicians. I liked
that I was able to work directly with the attending docs."

Comments from Faculty: 

"Able to see what family medicine is meant to be: from neonates to 100 year olds and everything in between. A really good opportunity to see what rural medicine is all about.”
