The New Regional Medical Campus: A Practical Guide

Ralitsa Akins, Michael Flanagan, Lanita Carter, Katherine McOwen

Research output: Contribution to journalArticlepeer-review


There is a paucity of publications about new regional medical campuses. The authors, members of the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) and its Group on Regional Medical Campuses (GRMC), offer a historical perspective about the role of Regional Medical Campuses (RMCs), and provide a roadmap to establishing a new RMC, including logistics, resources, curriculum, student services, faculty, affiliations and networking within the community. A checklist designed to support leadership decision-making is also included. The RMC is an efficient model for increasing opportunities for clinical training, accommodating expansion of graduate medical education, and offering a cost-effective solution to train future physicians.
