ABSTRACT
The article discusses the need for medical practitioners to serve in rural areas in the U.S. It mentions that physicians prefer to work in urban communities rather than in rural areas since they are looking for high wages to pay for their education debts. Accordingly, only 11% of the country's physicians are serving 50 million individuals in rural areas. It also features Rural Partnership, a Tennessee-based organization that seeks solutions to the scarcity of physicians in the said areas.
