The true cornerstone of MRPSP is the two year undergraduate or pre-matriculation “nurturing” phase. Rural college premed students apply during the spring of their sophomore year of college. Applicants are interviewed by the MRPSP Board physicians followed by interviews with the School of Medicine Admissions Committee. The final selection is announced in May once spring grades are reviewed. Current research indicates physicians with rural roots are far more likely than urbanites to practice medicine in a small town as it is a life style choice to raise their families in a church and community centered environment. MRPSP is way for Mississippi to “grow our own” primary care physicians.
