  1. A program to increase the number of family physicians in rural and underserved areas : Impact after 22 years.

    Article - En anglais

    Context The shortage of physicians in rural areas is a longstanding and serious problem, and national and state policymakers and educators continue to face the challenge of finding effective ways to increase the supply of rural physicians.

    Objective To determine the direct and long-term impact of the Physician Shortage Area Program (PSAP) of Jefferson Medical College (JMC) on the rural physician workforce.

    Among all US and international medical school graduates, PSAP graduates represent 12% of all family physicians in rural Pennsylvania.

    Results were similar for PSAP graduates practicing in underserved areas. (...)
