Recruitment: Offer docs peace of mind in a stressful occupation
An aging baby boomer population. Medicare, Medicaid, and managed care reimbursement changes and cutbacks. Physicians seeking a different, more-relaxed lifestyle and, in turn, working fewer hours than their predecessors. The increased likelihood of malpractice litigation and all of the associated costs. All of these factors are contributing to what some experts predict could be a major physician shortage in the coming years. At the current pace, the nation will have a shortage of 85,000-200,000 doctors by 2020, various studies predict. As a result, you will likely have to fight harder to fill your physician openings in the future.
