Emergency physician shortages worsening in rural America

By | August 17, 2020

Christopher Bennett, MD, MA, was featured in HealthLeaders about his manuscript published in Annals of Emergency Medicine describing the U.S. emergency physician workforce in 2020. Dr. Bennett and colleagues found that many parts of rural America are enduring shortages of emergency physicians. The problem is expected to worsen as a generation of rural doctors retires with no one to replace them. PMID: 32747085
