America’s aging population is leading to a doctor shortage crisis

From CNBC. Hat Tip: Dr. Menadue:

  • As America’s population ages and demand outpaces supply, a physician shortage will intensify.
  • The U.S. is expected to see a shortage of 46,900 to 121,900 physicians by 2032 in primary and specialty care.
  • Americans are living longer and requiring more care later into life, and doctors themselves are aging out of the profession.
