The mission of the College is to provide physicians to rural and medically underserved areas. Our alumni practice statistics show that our students are filling the gaps in healthcare in our target areas. This is important to our goals in our target regions surrounding Virginia, the Carolinas, Alabama and Louisiana which have a great need for primary care physicians.
