2013 RTT-TA Program Conclave
This year's 3rd Annual RTT Conclave was held in Boise and Caldwell, Idaho. The two day event provided an excellent setting for interactions among the participants regarding best practices, e.g. the importance of rural residency coordinators, ideas for recruiting medical students and avenues for further sustaining and developing RTTs.
