New study to look at lack of rural physicians

Arbiteronline.com, December 6, 2007
Boise State's Center for Health Policy and Family Medicine Residency of Idaho are teaming up to investigate what doctors are looking for when they decide whether or not to practice in out-of-the way communities. Researchers will then rate Idaho communities on characteristics important to prospective physicians, such as remoteness, scope of services offered at local hospitals, and loan repayment programs.
