Pathman, Donald E.; Steiner, Beat D.; Jones, Brett D.; Konrad, Thomas R.
Academic Medicine, v74 n7 p810-20 Jul 1999
A survey of 456 rural physicians identified features of their training that correlated with their self-reported preparedness for rural practice and small-town living, and with how long they stayed in their rural practices. Results suggest residency rotations in rural areas are the best educational experiences to prepare physicians for rural practice and lengthen the time they stay there. (Author/MSE)
