Abstract

"Focus on Health Care" piece on the difficulty of attracting primary care physicians to rural Maine. Oxford Hills Internal Medicine Group has advertised for an internist for three months with no inquiries. A survey found that the leading reason physicians leave a rural position is that their spouses want to leave. Additionally, fewer primary care physicians are entering the work force. Maine has been hit especially hard, with 53 percent of its population living in rural areas, compared with 16 percent nationwide.
