The Mercury News - August 20, 2019 at 5:14 am (米国 カリフォルニア州)
California is facing a growing shortage of primary care physicians, one that is already afflicting rural areas and low-income inner city areas, and is forecasted to impact millions of people within ten years. Not enough newly minted doctors are going into primary care, and a third of the doctors in the state are over 55 and looking to retire soon, according to a study by the Healthforce Center at UC-San Francisco.

Helsingin Sanomat starts the week with a story on the severe shortage of early childhood education professionals, as hundreds of vacancies remain unfilled throughout the country. The paper says it previously reported back in 2017 that insufficient salaries in the field had prompted 40 percent of daycare and kindergarten staff to consider changing occupations.
HS writes that municipalities in Finland have since done little to remedy the problem. It mentions that in 2018, the cities in the capital region were accused of reaching an under-the-table agreement to keep salaries low, a claim that municipal employers denied. The cities of Helsinki, Espoo and Vantaa nevertheless decided that autumn to raise early childhood education salaries by between 145 and 175 euros per month, to around 2,600 euros.

CLEVELAND, Ohio – A looming primary care physician shortage has medical schools and hospital systems looking for ways to attract new doctors to the field. The shortage could make it harder for patients to see a primary care physician, increase health disparities among the underserved and raise costs as patients turn to the more-expensive emergency room for care, said Dr. Patricia Thomas, vice dean for medical education at the Case Western Reserve University School of Medicine.

Kamehameha Schools graduate Kekoa Taparra would love to return home to complete his doctor training in Hawaii when he graduates from medical school. But he can't. A training program in radiation oncology — his chosen specialty — simply doesn’t exist in Hawaii.
“I have this mission to come back home and join the forefront against cancer, but I definitely have to stay on the mainland a bit longer,” he said over the phone from Rochester, Minnesota, where he attends the Mayo Clinic Alix School of Medicine.

Arizona is part of a nationwide physician shortage that experts say stands to worsen in the coming years as Baby Boomers reach retirement age. The Life Science division of global research firm IHS Markit predicts that the United States will need an astounding 121,900 primary care and specialty doctors by 2032.
General surgeons are in high demand, too, as the nation’s population is growing faster than the number of physicians specializing in this area of medicine. The American Medical Colleges estimates a shortfall of 41,000 general surgeons by 2025.
Arizona – particularly in rural areas of our state – is already feeling the pinch, especially when it comes to primary care physicians. The Health Resources and Services Administration estimates that our state needs 563 primary care physicians now

A growing physician shortfall has hospitals compensating in creative ways.

SARAH GÓMEZ WENT INTO the family business.
Inspired by her father, a doctor who devoted his life to caring for the underserved, the third-year family medicine resident works at the Desert Regional Medical Centerhospital and the UCR Health Family Medicine Center in a part of Palm Springs, California, that seems light years from the plush playgrounds of Hollywood golden-era icons like Bob Hope and Frank Sinatra. Many of her hospital patients are homeless, living in their cars or crammed into tiny apartments with relatives, with little protection from the blazing 120-degree heat in summer. They suffer from uncontrolled diabetes, heart disease, high blood pressure, and some from the ravages of addiction.
"This is my community and I wanted to take care of the people in it," says Gómez, 30, who emigrated with her family from Mexico at age 6 and grew up in nearby Corona.
That's why she chose to pursue her medical education at the University of California–Riverside, about 60 miles east of Los Angeles. UCR School of Medicine, which opened its doors six years ago with a mission of serving the underserved, was deliberately located in "the other California" – the hardscrabble towns far removed from the affluent coastal enclaves – and recruits aggressively in economically disadvantaged areas; a large proportion of current students come from populations woefully underrepresented in medicine.

Hundreds of hospitals in rural America could close if their financial situations do not improve, a new analysis indicates.
People in rural communities, frequently burdened by physician shortages and older populations, often face more difficulty than their urban peers in accessing health care. Now, a new analysis from Navigant, a consulting firm based in Chicago, finds that about 1 in 5 rural hospitals – a total of 430 – are at high risk of closure due to their financial situations, potentially hindering many Americans' access to care and affecting 150,000 hospital-related jobs.
