Abstract As a crucial component of a health system, the shortage of health workforce could deteriorate health outcomes. Though newly graduated physicians entering the rural areas every year, the turnover rate of rural physicians was as high as 11% of rural physicians. It is thus crucial to explore strategies to attract and retain physicians in rural areas. This study was a cross sectional study with 255 physicians serving in years 1-3 from 9 provinces included in the sample. Job preference was assessed using the Discrete Choice Experiment (DCE) method, which involved asking subjects to indicate their preference between 2 hypothetical jobs, one rural and one urban. Each job was characterized by 7 job attributes. A total of 211 physicians responded, with females (57.8%) responded slightly more than males. The majority of subjects was from an urban background (83%), and graduated from a regional university (63%). There were 24% of physicians under the rural recruitment project. In relation to their job preference, all attributes were found to be statistically significant in determining the decision to choose a job in a rural area. The results showed that high salaries, workplace close to hometown, small hospital size, less overtime work, opportunities for specialty training and faster career promotion were important for young physicians to choose rural posts. The results suggested that the combinations of salary increase, specialty training opportunities, reduce overtime work, and accelerated promotions seem to be good policy candidates to attract and retain physicians to rural areas.
