Evaluation of the Free Tuition Physician Recruitment Incentives
B. Minore, R.W. Pong, and M.E. Hill
At the request of the Ministry of Health and Long-Term Care, CRaNHR undertook an evaluation of the "Free Tuition" incentive program designed to encourage recruitment of physicians to underserviced communities in Ontario. The evaluation used a mailed survey to assess the opinions of current and past participants in the program. Their views were augmented by telephone interviews with individuals responsible for administering the program, as well as representatives of physician groups, communities, and health care facilities.
