Rabinowitz, Howard K.; Paynter, Nina P.
Journal of Rural Health, v16 n3 p249-53 Sum 2000
Outcomes data from seven medical schools with successful special programs to increase the rural physician work force identify three core features: a strong institutional mission, targeted selection of students likely to practice in rural areas, and a focus on primary care, especially family practice. Rural residency programs should collaborate with medical schools that produce rural physicians. (Author/TD)
