About a decade ago, I was reading a story in an edition of Medical Economics about there being an oversupply of physicians. Now, I have recently heard that there are not enough physicians and that there also needs to be more specialists. A decade ago the focus was on primary care. The doctor and specialist glut was supposed predicted to last until the end of THIS decade (ending 2010). Can anybody give some real, hard-core statistics from a credible source as to what the current situation is with reguard to the supply of physicians? Thanks.
