Many University of Nebraska Medical Center students will spend the spring semester working in rural areas of the state.

The rotations are designed to teach medical students valuable lessons and encourage students to consider working in a rural area after graduation.

The idea behind the program is that students who train in rural areas are more likely to return to one after school. There has long been a shortage of health care professionals in rural Nebraska.

The students working in rural areas include men and women studying to be doctors, pharmacists, dentists and physician assistants.
