Rural Texas desperately needs more doctors and health care providers. A Texas A&M University School of Medicine program is trying to find a way to attract doctors to rural areas by offering its students elective rotations in small towns like Beeville and Mason. It’s also partnering with educators in local school districts to foster interest in careers in medicine, health care and science. Though only a few years old, the program has generated promising results and attracted a growing number of counties, towns and schools wanting to participate.
In the latest episode of Texas County Voice, Curtis Donaldson, director of Rural Medicine Outreach at Texas A&M's medical school, talks about the school's efforts to cultivate country doctors.
