Madisonville Rural Medical Program Puts Doctors in Small Towns
Sixty of the 120 counties in Kentucky are underserved due to lack of physicians serving in small towns, but that health problem is being addressed by the University of Louisville School of Medicine's rural medical accelerated track program or RMAT. Dr. William Crump is Associate Dean of the school at Baptist Health Madisonville and speaks with Kate Lochte on Sounds Good about the groundbreaking program.
The first graduate of the University of Louisville's School of Medicine's Rural Medical Accelerated Track program - just this June - is Ashley Flanary Jessup of Benton, who is now serving her residency at Baptist Health Madisonville.
