Jensen, Christine C.; DeWitt, Dawn E.
Journal of Rural Health, v18 n1 p25-30 Win 2002
A survey of 58 medical residents participating in a 1-2 month rural elective and 51 matched nonparticipants found that participants' interest in rural practice increased significantly after the elective. Respondents suggested means to increase rural career choice, barriers to rural practice, and ways of increasing the rural elective's influence on physicians' choice of location.
