Health professions students planning practice in a rural area need to learn about agromedicine. Because the curriculum during health professions training has little time for this subject area, agromedicine material was taught to undergraduate students in a one week workshop. A pre-test and post-test format was used to measure increase in knowledge about farm health and safety.
