Rural Hospital Medicine

Rural hospital medicine is determined by its social context, the rural environment: the demands of which include professional & geographic isolation, limited resources and special cultural and sociological factors. It is invariably practiced at a distance from comprehensive specialist medical and surgical services and investigations. A broad generalist set of skills, knowledge and attitudes are needed to deliver optimum patient outcomes in rural hospitals. Unlike rural general practice, rural hospital medicine is orientated to secondary care, is responsive rather than anticipatory and does not continue over time.
