Rural Doctors are medical personnel rooted in the vast rural areas and have been playing an active role in maintaining the physical health of our country's rural people. Generally speaking, the rural doctors in our country are developing in a positive direction, but they also meet the bottleneck of development and face some challenges. To further improve the quality of medical and health services in rural areas of China and enable rural residents to enjoy high-quality and convenient basic healthcare, we are now conducting a study on strengthening the team construction of rural doctors. By investigating the age, educational background, and job content of the rural doctors in this county, we can understand the current situations of rural doctors in this place. Given these problems, this paper puts forward some constructive suggestions to stabilize and develop the rural doctors to solve the existing problems.
