Book Description:
The need to better prepare physicians for rural and remote practice continues to be a pressing issue in medical education around the world. Rural and remote communities continue to have unequal health outcomes and lower proportions of medical practitioners, and doctors continue to be poorly prepared for the challenges they face in these communities. Medical educators continue to experience difficulty accessing sound information about how to deliver courses that help meet these workforce challenges. This book offers a wide range of strategies for meeting education delivery challenges in the key areas of rural and remote workforce preparation. (Imprint: Nova Press)
