Medical Manpower for Rural Areas.
Margulies, Harold
This nation is rapidly becoming an urbanized society and the rate of producing trained physicians is not increasing rapidly enough to keep up with the population explosion. This creates a problem for rural areas because, despite the many innovative efforts to entice physicians to establish a rural practice, new physicians are concentrated in the urban areas. However, the problem of inadequate rural health services is not hopeless if the small communities will take advantage of those people in their community who have some background and experience in health services. Such local services, aided by modern technology, can have a very positive effect on the health service problem in rural America. In addition, the passing of recent Federal legislation aimed at area-wide planned health services can further alleviate this recognized problem. (DB)
