This program addresses the shortage of physicians in rural communities of New York State. There is evidence that people who grow up in rural communities or who trained there will later return to set up medical practice in a rural setting. This program will also attempt to provide a more diverse student population for entry into physician training programs. Acceptance into this program indicates willingness to participate in the Rural Medical Scholars Program (RMSP). Students who enroll in this program will be assigned to the RMSP track as a medical student at SUNY Upstate Medical University.
Interested students who have been admitted to SUNY-ESF for freshman entry and meet the minimum criteria outlined below may apply for the Joint BS/MD program.
