- To learn from physicians in the National Health Service Corps (referred to as NHSC or the Corps) scholarship program about their experiences in rural health professional shortage areas (HPSAs), to contrast their experiences with those of other physicians working in rural HPSAs, and to learn how NHSC physicians'retention is associated with the quality of their experiences.
- Cohort study.
- Two groups of primary care physicians who moved to rural HPSAs nationwide from 1987 through 1990 were surveyed in 1991 : group 1 consisted of all 675 physicians in the NHSC scholarship program, and group 2 consisted of a stratified random sample of 1000 non-Corps physicians.
Response rates were 73.7% and 69.1%, respectively.
