Wunderman, Lorna E.; Steiber, Steven R.
Journal of Medical Education, v58 n5 p389-94 May 1983
Sixty-five percent of physicians entering their first professional positions leave the counties of their residencies, following a national migration trend to the Sun Belt. Most of these were in nonprimary care specialties and moved into self-employment or office-based practices, were disproportionately male, and moved to smaller urban or nonurban centers. (MSE)
