Will the doctor be in?

  • ​​​Physician shortages are driving up healthcare costs and will continue to put upward pressure on clinical wages.
  • The U.S. Department of Health and Human Services projects that the nation will face a shortage of nearly 40,000 primary care physicians by 2025, a 17.0 percent deficit based on supply estimates.
  • Fueling this imbalance is the aging baby boom generation, a retiring physician workforce and decline in supply of  General/family medicine and internal medicine practitioners.
  • Rural areas, primarily in the South and Midwest are projected to experience the greatest shortfall, a continuation of a decades long shortage in many underserved areas. ​
