CLOQUET — More than 60 first year medical students from the University of Minnesota Duluth spent June 13 at Community Memorial Hospital to learn more about rural health care, according to a news release from CMH.

The students heard from a panel of physicians on the challenges of practicing rural health care and then attended presentations on surgery, inpatient services and obstetrics. They also heard from CMH CEO Rick Breuer and representatives from the Office of Rural Health and Primary Care.

Our newsroom occasionally reports stories under a byline of "staff." Often, the "staff" byline is used when rewriting basic news briefs that originate from official sources, such as a city press release about a road closure, and which require little or no reporting. At times, this byline is used when a news story includes numerous authors or when the story is formed by aggregating previously reported news from various sources. If outside sources are used, it is noted within the story.
