Abstract

The University of Texas Medical Branch in Galveston (UTMB) family medicine residency program established a rural training track (RTT) in Weimar, Texas, in 2000. The UTMB-RTT provided a training environment designed specifically to prepare family physicians for rural practice in Texas. From 2000 to 2015, 17 family medicine residents completed their training and graduated from the UTMB-RTT. Despite successes with graduate training, rural placement after program completion, and recruitment of underrepresented minorities, the UTMB-RTT closed in June 2015. This paper describes the strengths of and challenges experienced by the program, as well as lessons learned to inform future endeavors.
