The Rural Interprofessional Longitudinal Scholars (RIPLS) Program at the University of North Carolina is a three-year pilot program supported by the William R. Kenan, Jr. Charitable Trust. The program is a joint effort of the health professions schools at UNC, each of which has a similar mission – improve and promote the health and wellbeing of North Carolinians, improve public health and eliminate health inequities, advance and advocate for health care through education, practice, research, innovation and collaboration.

The RIPLS Program consists of the following components:

  • Interprofessional Seminars
  • Summer Immersion
  • Population Health Course
  • Clinical Immersion
  • Training Program with Faculty Champions
