Oregon Health and Science University to recruit persons interested in rural practice
(1) The Oregon Health and Science University shall develop and implement a program to focus recruitment efforts on students who reside in or who are interested in practicing in rural or medically underserved areas of this state.
(2) The university shall reserve a number of admissions to each class at the medical school for qualified students who demonstrate an interest in practicing medicine in rural or medically underserved areas of this state. Once the students are admitted, the university shall support them with resources such as clinical rotations in rural or medically underserved areas, programs that allow a student to complete a clerkship in family medicine and rural and community health in a single rural Oregon community and technical assistance with accessing education loan and assistance programs. Not more than 15 percent of the students in each class shall be admitted under this section, consistent with the intent of the Legislative Assembly to encourage the availability of medical services in rural and medically underserved areas of this state.
(3) In the event that the university is unable to recruit the number of qualified students required under subsection (2) of this section, after having made a reasonable effort to do so, the university is authorized to fill the remaining positions with other eligible candidates.
