International/Inner City/Rural Preceptorship (I2CRP)
The mission of the International/Inner City/Rural Preceptorship program at the Virginia Commonwealth University School of Medicine (VCU SOM) is to increase the number of primary care physicians practicing in rural, urban, and international underserved communities. The I2CRP program strives to meet this mission by better preparing student doctors to provide quality, compassionate care to medically underserved populations.
Students choose either an urban or rural underserved track. Complementary international experiences are coordinated through the student organization HOMBRE. Students participating in I2CRP may be eligible for state and federal tuition loan repayment plans.
