Rural Physician Recruitment with a Twist
"If you look at recruiting the next generation of Americans, you want to look strongly at this model, because that’s what motivates them," Anderson says. He points to Via Christi, saying that 50% of the residents coming into this class are doing elective rotations in underserved areas.
"Not because they have to, but because they want to," he says. "33% of them are going overseas…what's being overlooked is that they can meet the same need by staying here, and going over there for a few weeks a year. And they can find the same mission right here at home."
