This blog features selections from The Country Doctor Revisited: A 21st Century Reader (Kent State University Press, 2010)
Posts are created to help students on rural rotations explore their experiences and reflect on the issues facing rural health care providers today.
Written by rural health care professionals from across the US, the stories, poems, and essays in the book  debunk the old country doctor image—Norman Rockwell’s physician caring for farmers. While this may still be true in some places, the global age has reached rural America.
Use the book to educate students, the public and policy makers about rural practice today and to celebrate rural life.
