Project PROMISE

The Rural Health Information Hub (RHIhub) has a section of their website dedicated to model programs.   They recently highlighted Project PROMISE, a North Carolina program designed to encourage rural youth to pursue medical careers.

Project PROMISE (Providing Rural Opportunities in Medicine through Inspiring Service and Education) is the brainchild of two medical students who started the program to give high school seniors medical academic training, mentor relationships, and hands-on experience in rural North Carolina facilities.

Project PROMISE launched in the Fall of 2014 with their first group of students.  Since then, it has graduated 10 high school students, 5 of whom are pursuing an undergraduate degree with an interest in studying medicine.
