Shortage of doctors 'means nurses will have to do their work', as experts warn there's not enough qualified medics to fill the gaps in NHS workforce crisis
Published: 00:15 BST, 13 July 2018 Daily Mail (英国)

A lack of doctors means hospital patients should expect to be treated by nurses and less-qualified medics.
The Royal College of Physicians said an NHS workforce crisis means there are ‘nowhere near enough’ doctors to fill the gaps.
It warned that the days of Sir Lancelot Spratt – the fictional surgeon who always had an entourage of junior doctors in the book, film and TV series Doctor in the House – were over.

VA doctor shortage fueled by management issues, poor pay
The Washington Post July 16 (米国)

The Department of Veterans Affairs gets good grades for effort, but it still has much work to do in the recruitment and retention of physicians to serve those who faced death for their country.

When the Government Accountability Office says “challenges remain,” it means an agency has problems — in this case, too few doctors. Pay is an issue, but so is the department’s personnel management. A recent GAO report about the Veterans Health Administration, the component providing health care through 1,252 facilities, including 170 medical centers, outlines three major management troubles related to its doctor shortage:

“VHA’s data on the number of physicians that provided care at VA medical centers (VAMC) were incomplete.
“VHA provided VAMCs with guidance on how to determine the number of physicians and support staff needed for some physician occupations, although it lacked sufficient guidance for its medical and surgical specialties.
“VHA used various strategies to recruit and retain its physician workforce, but had not comprehensively evaluated them to assess effectiveness.”

How Doctor Shortages Impact Med School Admissions
Genuine interest in a medical field where doctors are scarce can enhance an applicant's candidacy.

July 23, 2018, at 12:00 p.m US News

In certain parts of the U.S., a doctor is hard to find. These places are typically located in low-income communities in remote, rural locations or in inner-city neighborhoods.

Similarly, there are some medical specialties, such as psychiatry and geriatrics, where, despite growing demand for medical care, there are a shrinking number of doctors.

Premeds with a demonstrated interest in providing medical care to underserved populations can sometimes boost their medical school admissions chances by noting this interest, according to Dr. McGreggor Crowley, an admissions counselor with the IvyWise admissions consulting firm.
