Reflections on rural medical schools

Posted on by

Two articles in the latest edition of the Journal of Primary Care on rural medical schools for New Zealand. Dr. John Burton writes a piece on his time at the Northern Ontario Medical School and reflects what that experience means in the NZ context.

The other is a guest editorial by Dr. Garry Nixon and Dr. Ross Lawrenson contextualising this in the current political climate. Hopefully the health minister has a read (and he might of given the comments at the National Rural Health Conference). Fingers crossed
