The Institute pursues this mission through the combined strength of scientific knowledge, community involvement, and informed public policy. The Rural Health Institute also serves as the research infrastructure for the College of Community Health Sciences (CCHS) and as a resource for researchers, individuals and organizations working to improve the health of rural communities.

The goal is to produce research that is useful to communities, policymakers, and health care providers as they work to improve the availability, accessibility, and quality of health care for rural and underserved citizens. IRHR partners with UA colleges/schools and rural communities, and has participated in federal and state grants totaling more than $45 million. IRHR’s efforts to reduce health disparities in rural communities are exercised through research, clinical trials, screenings, and health education that are participatory and mutually beneficial to communities.

Today, in addition to undergraduate and graduate medical education (a large Family Medicine residency and several fellowships) , the College also includes the University Medical Center, the Rural Health Leaders Pipeline, graduate level training, and the Institute for Rural Health Research.
