Who we are
Rural Seeds – or ‘World Rural Doctors in Training’– is a network comprising largely of students and young doctors with an interest in rural medicine who collaborate closely with experienced doctors and other health professionals.
The aim of Rural Seeds is to be a worldwide network that raises awareness and improves the guidance in training for rural practice for people in the early stages of their career development. One of its main aims is to contribute to the UN17 Sustainable Development Goals, especially goal number 10: “Reduce inequality within and among countries” since inequality in access to health services still persists around the world, particularly in rural areas.

Rural Seeds works to identify the rural healthcare needs in various regions and to understand what improvements can be made through the local and global rural community. While the main channel of communication is a Google Group, there are also other regional groups and social media spaces for involvement. To become a member of the network, a person needs to complete a form providing general information about themselves and their reasons for joining.
