MO med school looks to fill rural doc shortage

St. Louis Post-Dispatch / Associated Press, August 8, 2013

COLUMBIA, Mo. • A new study shows that University of Missouri medical students who spend time in rural communities while in school are more likely to start their careers away from big cities. Researchers led by Dr. Kevin Kane, of the medical school's family and community medicine department, interviewed nearly 230 participants in the summer program. They found that those participants were also more likely to choose family practice in residency training. The study covered the program's first 15 years.
