Rural Observation Experience (ROE)

The Rural Observation Experience (ROE) is a 2-3 day shadowing experience with a rural family physician. Students see first-hand the rewards and challenges of rural medicine. 

Any incoming first-year medical student at the University of Minnesota Medical School, Twin Cities campus, may apply. There are no prerequisites and all students who apply will be placed (depending on ROE site availability).

*Due to COVID-19, ROE will not be offered in its traditional format in 2020. Please stay tuned for further details to be posted here in the future.
