Rachel Ammons knows what she wants to do with her life and she knows where she wants to do it. Luckily, it’s right where she’s needed.
“I have always wanted to go into medicine,” the Guthrie native and Oklahoma State University graduate said. “I have an aunt who’s a Physician Assistant and an aunt who’s a Nurse Practitioner, but we didn’t have any doctors.”
Ammon just completed her first year at the OSU Center for Health Sciences where she’s in the Rural Medical Track, a program designed to prepare primary care physicians for rural or underserved areas, and an externship with Stillwater Medical Center.
The Rural Medical Track helps students develop leadership skills and gives them opportunities for research, early clinical experience and additional hands-on training. They complete the third year of their clinical core rotation at community-based, primary care residency sites around the state and complete at least two sub-internships and three residency rotations.
