Our goal is to increase the number of physicians practicing medicine in rural communities in Arkansas.

There are many opportunities for rural communities, physicians, and students interested in rural health to connect:

  • Rural communities and physicians are encouraged to visit the Rural Recruitment page for helpful recruitment tools

The Arkansas Rural Medical Practice Student Loan and Scholarship Board is the State appointed entity that promulgates rules and regulations for these programs.  For questions or assistance contact the Rural Programs Administrator.
