Doing a rural training rotation? You may be eligible for some reimbursement

You don’t have to travel to the ends of the earth for a transformative learning experience that is truly cross-cultural, especially as it compares to an urban medical school and academic medical center. For the second year in a row, during the 2012-2013 academic year, the Rural Training Track (RTT) Technical Assistance Program is offering up to $1,000 in reimbursement to students doing a rotation at an RTT. The rotation must be for a minimum of 14 days, and reimbursement only applies to travel and lodging expenses. It is easy to participate, and any medical student of a U.S. allopathic or osteopathic medical school is eligible! After contacting the RTT program for their approval and clearing your participation with the appropriate official in your medical school, a simple Notice of Intent submitted to NRHA prior to the rotation is required to assure your place in this program. Receipt of reimbursement following the rotation is contingent upon the student’s submission of:
  •  A report and reflection upon the experience (500 word minimum)
  • Paper or electronically scanned receipts of travel and lodging expenses
  • Verification by the RTT Program Director, Site Director, or Coordinator that the student has in fact satisfactorily completed the rotation and met the 14 day requirement.
All three conditions must be met to be considered for reimbursement. For more information and a packet of materials, visit the Train Rural website. Originally appeared on Train Rural: Real Stories from Rural Students and Residents
