But whether physicians choose to pursue a solo practice or join a practice, Barbe says more physicians need to consider practicing in a smaller area. "I want to debunk the myth of professional or social isolation in a rural community," he adds. "Many physicians fear that in a rural community they'll be too far from a good restaurant or sports or activities for their children." While it may take a little more effort to access some of those social amenities, most small communities are within driving distance of a larger community or metro area. "I don't think enough physicians give careful consideration to their opportunities in that regard," Barbe says. "Rural America is a wonderful place to practice and raise a family." Mooneyha m has fou nd that to be true. Her relocation to Redding — where her parents and brother still live — turned out to be a smooth move for her and her husband. The firm where her husband was working in Sacramento had a large corporate office in Redding. Now, her husband's new office is only a quarter mile from her hospital. Her a dv ice for physic i a n s consider i ng mov i ng home is simple: Do it. She believes it is especially important for those from underserved communities to return because they have insider knowledge of those areas and will be welcomed with open arms. "There is a certain intimacy when working with other health care providers who have a connection to who I was before becoming a physician," says Mooneyham. "It is likewise also rewarding providing care to those who know me as 'Amanda,' before I became 'Dr. Mooneyham.'" Win!
