This report was prepared in response to a request from Frank Cerra, M.D., Senior Vice
President of the Academic Health Center at the University of Minnesota. Dr. Cerra
asked us to examine whether an increase was needed in the supply of primary care
physicians practicing in rural Minnesota and, if so, to present options for increasing the
number of physicians who choose rural primary care practice. We focused on three main research questions: Is there a current or impending primary care physician shortage in rural Minnesota? What roles do the University of Minnesota and other key stakeholders play in producing primary care physicians to practice in rural Minnesota? What actions can the University of Minnesota, the Minnesota Legislature and other key stakeholders take to ensure an adequate supply of primary care physicians to meet the health care needs of the entire state population?
