The University of South Dakota is expanding its medical school class size starting in the fall of 2015.
USD Sanford Medical School currently admits 56 students to its medical degree program every year. Eleven more students will be added per class during the next four years.
Dr. Mary Nettleman is the medical school's dean and vice president for health affairs at USD. Nettleman says the expansion is under the directive of a task force created by South Dakota Gov. Dennis Daugaard.
The Primary Care Task Force is looking into how a potential shortage of rural health care providers could affect South Dakotans.
