Abstract

Family and general practitioners have historically provided a substantial portion of obstetric care in rural parts of the United States, including Missouri. The authors surveyed 328 rural general physicians to determine their participation in obstetrics. Their findings show a dramatic loss of physician obstetric services in rural Missouri and suggest that the dilemma is not likely to be easily remedied.
