Rural Healthcare Can Entice the Best and Brightest

Ali Chisti intends to pursue a career as an internist and a population health specialist providing care in underserved and rural areas—not as a neurosurgeon as he had originally planned. He changed his mind when he came to understand the gap in resources between rural and urban areas.

Challenges remain for all locations and populations with regard to health care. The best and brightest are seen across the wide range of settings. Northern Ontario School of Medicine and Florida State have demonstrated superior medical education using rural, underserved, and community based sites. Top ratings of students, top scores, and top matches indicate this success. Traditional medical education must learn to emulate the high quality mark set by rural medical education for 9 months in a rural location working with interprofessional teams and learning from people and patients - not just books.

I would work with this doctor in a heartbeat. It's wonderful to work with someone who sees the gaps and deficiencies and isn't afraid to implement an idea, revise, and re-do. He would be an exciting person to work with and for.
