What differentiates the rural clinician from the urban clinician? By definition, rural applies to an area with less population and more geography. Most states have areas considered rural when compared to other portions of their state. Certainly rural in Wyoming (state population of roughly 450,000 people in total) is defined differently than rural in Wisconsin or even California. However, rural does apply to specific areas of both of those large, populated states. If the phrase “going to town” conveys great stirs of excitement in your home and/or if your daily travels involve dirt roads at least some of the time, then I am assured you understand the term rural well enough for this article. In some instances rural is further defined to the term frontier indicating even greater geographical distances and fewer people.
