Welcome to the Country Doctor Revisited blog. This blog is geared to health professions students who are on rural rotations. Based on the stories, poems and essays from the collection: The Country Doctor Revisited: A 21st Century Reader (Kent State University Press, 2010), we will explore some of the issues unique to care in rural areas as well as some themes that are just part of health care no matter where you practice. Please be respectful of others when you respond to the blog entries. Do not include your preceptor/teacher’s name, the names of staff, the names of patients you see or the town where you are spending time. Such specifics will be removed from your blog entries. Be generic but share the heart of your experiences. We are all here to learn from each other.
