SDN Members don't see this ad. (About Ads) Heard this piece on my way into work this morning: http://www.npr.org/blogs/health/201...o-solve-mississippis-m-d-shortage?ps=sh_sthdl Any University of Mississippi students on here that care to comment on the program? To others, would you consider enrolling in this type of program in your own state if such a thing existed? Why or why not? For me, the answer is a simple no, for two reasons. 1) I'm a pathologist, and this program probably is only for FM, IM, or gen peds. 2) I'm in a minority group, and just wouldn't be willing to live and raise my kids without a community of my group. But I think these kinds of programs have a real shot at success, and I also think we need programs like this if we want physicians (rather than physician extenders) to remain the ones providing primary care in rural areas of the US.
