TRUST (Targeted Rural Underserved Track)
The Targeted Rural Underserved Track (TRUST) curriculum is a longitudinal medical school experience in rural and small city underserved communities, with a goal to produce physicians committed to practice in the underserved areas of Wyoming and the WWAMI region. With admission through an acceptance process, TRUST students are linked to their rural/underserved communities and with existing UW courses and programs, such as the Underserved Pathway, Rural and Underserved Opportunities Program (RUOP), and the 5-6 month WWAMI Rural Integrated Training Program (WRITE). The TRUST program promotes and supports student interest in rural/underserved health workforce training. Go to the TRUST website for more information.
WRITE, a longitudinally integrated clerkship program that occurs in the first clinical year, was developed by the University of Washington School of Medicine as a means to help meet the need for rural primary care physicians in the WWAMI region. The success of this unique program is due to the integration of community involvement, continuity of experience and a proven curriculum. A detailed description of this program can be found at the website. WRITE locations:
