This is welcome news. But California needs many more physicians than one additional medical school can supply. Already, nearly 8 million Californians live in federally designated “health professional shortage areas” that lack a sufficient number of primary care physicians. Those shortages may expand, as the state’s population grows and ages.

Doctors who have been educated abroad — including many American citizens who went to medical school overseas — are eager to fill the gaps in the U.S. physician workforce.

Free med school won’t solve the doctor shortage
By QS Asia News Network - December 4, 2018

The New York University School of Medicine had recently eliminated tuition for all current and future students in attempt to resolve the challenge of doctor shortage faced by the nation. It is believed that by reducing the immense amount of financial debt will allow more students to seek careers in the medical field. They will also be more inclined to become primary care providers in underprivileged areas. However, student debt is not the real reason for the decline in the number of doctors. According to the latest prediction by the Association of American Medical Colleges, there will be an inadequacy of up to 120,000 doctors by 2030, an increase of approximately 14 percent from 2017. Further, nearly 60 percent of regions that lack primary care are within the rural region.
