Five towns have been selected as the first clinical sites for a rural health care project sponsored by the University of South Dakota medical school.
The Frontier and Rural Medicine program, known as FARM, allows USD medical students nine months of training in rural areas. The goal is to increase the number of doctors in rural South Dakota.
Eligible communities for the clinical sites had to have fewer than 10,000 people.
The students will be based in Milbank, Mobridge, Winner, Platte and Parkston.
