The University of Arkansas for Medical Sciences received an additional $2.83 million for a program that aims to expand access to health care in rural areas.

The money from the U.S. Department of Health and Human Services adds to an earlier $4.6 million award, a news release said. It supports programs meant to increase the number of doctors in rural and underserved areas.

Part of the initiative works to increase the number of students from historically Black colleges and universities who pursue advanced degrees in medicine and the health professions.

Sixteen of that effort's participants from the University of Arkansas at Pine Bluff and Philander Smith College took the MCAT -- a test that's part of medical school applications -- this summer.
