The purpose of this study is to examine the relative effectiveness of three health manpower programs–loan forgiveness, preceptorship and community recruitment–at inducing physicians into shortage counties in four census regions. Descriptive statistics suggest that the relative unattractiveness of shortage counties varies so that alternative regional strategies to redistribute physician resources are needed.
