So, what people say online about primary care and what I see don't really match up. People are saying midlevels are taking over primary care, and primary care is simple so midlevels can do it, but if this is the case, why is are the FM residents being recruited so heavily not just at my school, but other places as well? Recruiters are offering them stipends with in residency, signing bonuses, loan repayment, if it were easier and cheaper to replace FM with NP, why go through all the trouble to recruit FM. Why not just hire NPs. I've asked the people in the FM forum, and they said " Well who told you NPs are replacing FM physicians?" Basically everybody, its a common sentiment.
