Medical students gravitate away from specialties

The Tennessean, March 21, 2008
Despite the demand for coveted specialty slots, nationwide figures for this year's "match day" showed some signs of reversing a trend away from primary care areas such as family and internal medicine. The 7.6 percent of U.S. medical school seniors that matched in family medicine is a slight growth over last year. Part of the reason for the reversal is because more positions were offered in that area to help bolster the number of doctors practicing general medicine.
