Abstract

General surgery in the rural hospital is threatened by declining resident interest in pursuing a career in the rural setting. We found that by initiating a rural rotation of 3 months in the senior resident years, a case mix that more approximated that of the rural surgeons was experienced. Also, by experiencing a rural rotation, more residents chose to practice in a rural setting when compared with residents before the initiation of the rotation.
