FEATURED PROGRAM:  Rural Immersion Institute of the North (RIIN)

RIIN is specifically designed for pre-med students to gain unique first hand experiences and skills within a rural immersion experience.  Groups are kept small for intense leadership development, interactive community discussion, reflective work and personal skill building.  This is your opportunity to experience, first-hand, a life steeped in culture within a dynamic healthcare environment.  You will obtain a deeper understanding of health issues confronting rural communities while gaining valuable skills for becoming a future provider.
