(1) The Oregon Health and Science University shall develop and implement a program to focus recruitment efforts on students who reside in or who are interested in practicing in rural areas.
(2) The university shall reserve a number of admissions to each class at the medical school for qualified students who agree to participate in the Rural Health Services Program. The number of admissions under this section is not required to exceed 15 percent of each class, but that figure is a goal consistent with the long term intention of the Legislative Assembly to encourage the availability of medical services in rural areas.
(3) In the event that the university is unable to recruit the number of qualified students required under subsection (2) of this section, after having made a reasonable effort to do so, the university is authorized to fill the remaining positions with other eligible candidates. [Formerly 442.565]
