American Medical News: Physician shortage projected to soar to more than 91,000 in a decade
American Medical News: Physician shortage projected to soar to more than 91,000 in a decade.
Blaming future shortages on health system reform isn't really
accurate, said George Rust, MD, MPH, professor of family medicine and
director of the National Center for Primary Care at Morehouse School of
Medicine in Atlanta.
"The uninsured have always had needs -- we just weren't meeting them.
Now there will just be more paying patients," Dr. Rust said. "All of us
are going to have to learn to work more effectively."
