REHPS, Rural Experiences for Health Professions Students, Summer Experience Program helps place clinical psychology, master of social work, physician and physician assistant students from the University of South Dakota (USD) and medical laboratory science, nurse practitioner, and pharmacy students from South Dakota State University (SDSU) in a four week experience with preceptors established in rural or frontier areas of South Dakota. The students are paired together, promoting interprofessional studies, and are required to complete a community project during their experience. Students are exposed to all aspects of a rural healthcare community. The program encourages rural communities to welcome students and form strong bonds; laying the groundwork for the likelihood those students may return to work/practice in their rural community. Students are provided with housing, some meals, a stipend and perks like a wellness center membership, movie passes, a round of golf, etc.
