Physician Workforce: The Next Generation

The new health reform law poses questions about how the increase in the insured population will affect the demand on the health care workforce. Will it increase the shortage among primary care physicians? What about specialists? How much of the workforce shortage can be alleviated by payment incentives in the new law for both primary care and general surgery, and other new incentives to practice in underserved areas? Are there enough effective efforts in place to recruit and train ethnically diverse and culturally sensitive physicians? This November 15 briefing, cosponsored by the Alliance for Health Reform and the Robert Wood Johnson Foundation, presents some answers.
