For Rural Physicians


Marshall University partners with Project ECHO® (Extension for Community Healthcare Outcomes) to increase the capacity of primary care providers to safely and effectively treat chronic, common and complex conditions associated with endocrinology and cardiology issues.

The free teleECHO clinic is held the first Tuesday of each month at Noon with alternating endocrinology and cardiology sessions. Participants who join teleECHO clinics receive free CME for the total time spent participating, including didactics and patient-case presentations.

Rural Health Fellowship

Recognizing the need to retain more rural health care providers, the Rural Health Fellowship focuses on decreasing geographical isolation and the lack of collegiality often felt among rural practitioners. The program provides additional training in procedural medicine through a combination of instruction at an academic health center, faculty visits to the rural practitioner’s site and electronic distance learning.

The Rural Health Fellowship program is a year-long training program. The Rural Health Fellow develops goals and objectives for community-based projects, community- based research, or supports training that will enhance clinical skills development. In addition, mentors work closely with each fellow to ensure program evaluation completion and results.
