Doctor shortage puts pressure on Okanagan walk-in clinics
Globalnews.ca‎ - March1, 2018 8:57 pm カナダ ブリティッシュコロンビア州

Waits of two to three hours have become all too familiar at Okanagan walk-in clinics but fears are growing the situation will get worse before it gets better.
“We are definitely short of family doctors, there's no question and it's going to get worse over the next few years,” Dr. Michael Koss, leading physician with the Central Okanagan Division of Family Practice, said.
A 2014 survey done by the Central Okanagan Division of Family Practice showed that 38 per cent of family doctors were set to retire in the course of nine years.


Team Approach May Help Curb Nationwide Doctor Shortage

Need to see a doctor? Take a seat. It could be a while: 29 days on average for a new patient to see a family-medicine physician compared with 19 and a half days in 2014.
Part of the problem is a shortage of primary care physicians in the United States compared to other developed nations.
Patients are feeling the crunch "both in terms of the wait time to see a doctor, the wait time in the waiting room and then sometimes feeling like the doctor is distracted and over worked in the office,” said Lauren Friedman, Consumer Reports Health Editor.


SHS Doctor Shortage Leads To Longer Appointment Wait Times
The Student Life‎ - March 2, 2018, 3:12 a.m. 米国 カリフォルニア州

Student Health Services currently has just two physicians on staff and no director, leading to longer appointment wait times for some students.
In March 2017, former director Dr. Jenny Ho left SHS to pursue other professional opportunities. Another staff physician, Dr. Nayan Shah, replaced her in fall 2017, but he has also since left, according to Denise Hayes, The Claremont Colleges' vice president for student affairs.
When Jessica Hjelle SC '21 went to SHS earlier this semester to check on issues with her lungs, she ended up staying for more than two hours while waiting for a doctor.


Uni strives to meet doctor shortage crisis
Bangkok Post‎ - 1 Mar 2018 at 07:25 タイ

King Mongkut's Institute of Technology University Ladkrabang (KMITL) has established a faculty of medicine to help Thailand keep up with a demand for doctors as the country becomes an ageing society.
The faculty is set to accept its first batch of 50 students from March 5 to March 26. Its six-year Bachelor's programme will be taught completely in English.
Sirindhorn Hospital and Ladkrabang Hospital will be the main sites of clinical practice for its students.
KMITL president Suchatvee Suwansawat said the demand for doctors and medical professionals in Thailand is likely to increase as the percentage of the Thai population aged 65 years or older increased to 11% in 2017 and more than a quarter of the population is expected to fall into this age group by 2040.


BC doctors seeking a better work-life balance, and that could be hurting care: Vancoucer MD

McConville said the problem isn't technically a “doctor shortage,” arguing that there has actually been an increased supply of doctors in the medical system in recent years.
The problem, McConville argued, is that those doctors are increasingly unwilling to work grueling hours, and are cutting back on shifts as they seek a better work-life balance.
“So that potentially reduces the availability in terms of the total hours of physician man-time or woman-time available,” McConville said.
