What We Do

Rural PREP seeks to improve and sustain health professions education by conducting and disseminating research that leads to the integration of evidence-based practices in the preparation, recruitment, and retention of providers for rural primary care practice.

Our scholarly community of practice is evidenced based, community engaged, and practice informed.

We bring together educators, researchers, and practitioners to share evidence-based practices, generate new ideas for research and evaluation of rural primary care training, promote scholarly activity, and translate evidence into educational practice.

Rural PREP:

  1. Conducts systems-level research to inform rural primary care training
  2. Disseminates evidence-based practices and resources
  3. Expands a community of practice to promote the widespread enhancement of primary care training to produce a diverse, high quality primary care workforce to care for rural communities
