Marianna Rural Program

In keeping with the mission of the FSU College of Medicine, the Rural Medical Education Program provides students the opportunity to receive all of their third-year clinical training in the rural communities of Marianna and Chattahoochee in the Florida Panhandle. The educational objectives and grading policies for the clerkships and electives in the Rural Medical Education Program are the same as those for students at the college's regional campuses. The family medicine, pediatrics, internal medicine, general surgery, and obstetrics and gynecology clerkships are offered in Marianna, where the training sites include Jackson Hospital and a number of physician practices. The psychiatry clerkship is offered in nearby Chattahoochee at Florida State Hospital.
