Ellsbury, MD, an associate professor in the Department of Family Medicine at the University of Washington School of Medicine, said she and her colleagues have identified recruitment practices that successfully place women primary care physicians in rural areas.
Whether bucolic beauty trumps rural isolation when women physicians choose where to practice may depend as much on effective recruiting techniques as on individual preference of location. (Photo credit: PhotoDisc, Inc.)
