    I've heard a lot of talk about certain areas, mainly big cities, being saturated with physicians.

    Does anybody have a reliable website where one can see, for example, which areas are in need of more Anesthesiologists?

    I would love to work in an area that is not saturated with physicians, and I don't mind living in a small city. But, I just don't know where on the internet to look to find such information. Any help? It would be fun to see what areas I could possibly be interested in.

    You can find out which areas of the country are medically underserved from US Health and Human Services website:

    http://muafind.hrsa.gov/

    It doesn't delve into specialty types, however. It's helpful for those trying to recoup tuition costs, as underserved regions are plentiful in the US.

    Yeah, specialty types would be great to know. I'm planning on Ophthalmology. Would love to see what options I have. Great links you two.
