"The purpose of this organization is to promote healthcare to rural citizens of the state of Florida in both policy and practice, give students the opportunity to become affiliated with rural health organizations in Florida, provide knowledge of legislative issues pertaining to rural health, and serve rural communities in health related events."

FSU COM FRHA strives to educate medical students on the benefits and challenges of healthcare in the rural setting. The organization also helps introduce students from urban areas to rural culture. The addition of the Medical Student Chapter of the FRHA was a natural one, as the organization promotes the rural service mission of Florida State University College of Medicine.
