Rural Medicine Accelerated Track
A small number of TRT students have the option to be considered for the Rural Medicine Accelerated Track (RMAT) which leads to completion of their medical degree in a total of three years.
This track for completion of medical school in 3 years saves a year of time and tuition, allowing the ULTC RMAT graduate to start residency a year earlier, earning a PG-1 salary and benefits. This net swing is almost $100,000. However, it is only for very motivated students who are sure they want to practice primary care in a small Kentucky town. It is a competitive process, with the decision made after the student has demonstrated solid academic progress in the first 3 semesters of medical school and outstanding performance during the RMAT1 and RMAT2 sessions completed after the M-1 year.

Students selected for admission interviews in Madisonville as part of the ULSOM admission process may indicate their interest in RMAT and ask further questions at that time.
