By | June 1, 2021

Christopher Bennett, MD, MA was featured in Contemporary Pediatrics about his manuscript published in JAMA Network Open describing the U.S. pediatric emergency physician (EP) workforce in 2020. Dr. Bennett and colleagues found that almost all (99%) pediatric EPs work in urban areas. Many rural areas, including 3 states and 87% of counties have no pediatric EPs. PMID: 34003272
