Abstract
The development of health care is not balanced in the city and the countryside because of the poor primary medical treatment in rural areas of China. The aim of this research is to understand the reason why students are unwilling to work at the rural medical institutions. Impact factors are analyzed and countermeasures are proposed. The research methods combine questionnaires and interviews; 869 medical students have been selected and investigated adopting stratified random sampling method. Results in this study: first, it is found that 86% of girls tend to stay away from the countryside. 98% of students who come from the city don’t want to engage in rural medical work. In higher grades, the number of students who are unwilling to work in the rural medical institutions increases rapidly. However, there is no difference from every major specialty. Second, the attitude of students is mainly impacted by social factors. Third, the government should provide positive guidance to encourage students to engage in the rural medical services. Conclusion: not only health care system but also the career guidance should be improved to promote the sustainable development of society.
