Ashland, Kan., has a new model for rural medicine

http ://www.kansas.com/2012/04/29/2315352/ashland-kan-has-a-new-model-for.html#comment-513599636

While the rural shortages are real, Grayson, the rural health director, said, “Kansas is also doing a lot of things right.” To increase the number of medical school graduates, KU last year expanded its medical school in Wichita to four years and established a small, four-year campus in Salina. It also opened a pharmacy school in Wichita last year. There are also several programs that allow doctors to have their student loans repaid by the state if they locate to a rural site that needs their services. Seven or eight of Ashland’s medical staff have taken advantage of a new state program — rural opportunity zones — that waives state income taxes from 2012-16 for those who move from out of state into a county that has had dwindling population over the last decade. Clark County, where Ashland is located, qualifies. “There is proactive working being done,” Grayson said. “But we need fresh ideas to change with the environment. An innovative model like what Benjamin created is the cherry on top.”
