Physician Supply & Demand Projections

Some interesting statistical projections for the next ten years came out during a recent panel discussion held at the annual conference in Chicago of the Association of Staff Physician Recruiters. Here are a few highlights:
"By 2020, there is expected to be a shortage of 91,500 physicians — 45,400 primary care and 46,100 subspecialists — in the United States..."
"By 2019, the number of physicians reaching retirement age is expected to more than double, compared to 2009."
"Medical school enrollment is projected to increase 40 percent by 2015, compared to 2002, according to AAMC data. More medical schools are expected to open across the country, and growth in non-U.S. based medical schools enrolling U.S. students (such as Caribbean-based institutions) also influence this increase."
"...the number of residency and fellowship slots actually grew nearly 18 percent between 2000 and 2009..."

Pathology Professor Generously Donates to the University's Library

The Anne Ross Library wishes to sincerely thank Dr. Robert Fogel , Chair of Pathology, for the generous donation of more than 60 medical reference books. You will notice as you come into the library, we have relocated the Reference Collection to the shelves next to the 'Course Notes' in order to accommodate this valuable donation. The anatomical models have moved into the old reference shelves.
From all of us at the Library, we wish to say,
"Enjoy your retirement Dr. Fogel!"
You will be sincerely missed by all on campus!
