Doctoring The Doctor Shortage
Forbes Mar 7, 2019, 11:03am (米国)

We need more doctors in private practice. As the U.S. population ages and needs more medical care, there is growing concern this will exacerbate the projected physician shortage. The number of Americans age 65 or older is expected to double over the next 40 years. A report from the American Association of Medical Colleges predicts a dearth of 120,000 physicians by 2030. Without adequate physicians, patients may experience long wait times, receive delayed medical attention, and be limited to care from non-physician providers.

Lubbock, TX - With a rural doctor shortage impacting several counties in Texas, the Texas Tech Health Sciences Center is trying to help alleviate the shortage by expanding their Rural Health Residency Program in the summer.
In Texas, there are 27 counties without a physician, 157 without OBGYNs, 137 without pediatricians, and 175 without a psychiatrist.
Dr. Billy Philips, the Executive Vice President for Rural and Community Health for TTHSC, said there are a few reasons why there's a rural doctor shortage.
He said one example is physicians not showing interest in rural work because there isn't much access to comforts of urban life. Another example would be a large percentage of physicians who are baby boomers are close to retirement, he said.
Right now, he said there are 8 residents in Tech's rural training track and by July 2019 it will expand to 10 residents.
"We have great people and we save lives," Phillips said. "We improve outcomes and we do it with a lot of fun. It's exciting. It's never boring."
The program is designed to primarily get physician trainees into rural areas where Texas' long-standing doctor shortage is most severe.
