    If you mean the future doctor shortage, I hope so. I graduate in '12 and finish my IM residency in '15, just in time for that big signing bonus that comes with a shortage.

    In seriousness, i think it is an overall shortage, but it will be more acute in rural areas and states like michigan that are having trouble already. However, news sources have been releasing articles for years about a primary care shortage, mainly through efforts of the AMA to get more US students interested in those specialties.

    It looks like she is about to contaminate her gloves by touching the backside of the doctor's robe. I hope she moved back a little lol.

    shortage? what shortage? yea, i finally have a new doc starting in 2weeks. despite pay that is in the 98th percentile for IM in the US, i cant get anybody. why? rural hospital practice in SC. everyone would rather work in NYC or Cali or Chicago for a measly $150,000 to start. even though the cost of living there is about 3 times what it is here.

    Hey Jim, I am from the SE, would love to head up to SC after I graduate in 2010. Who wouldn't like the south, especially the Carolina's?
