Report says Wisconsin must address lack of primary care doctors

Milwaukee Journal-Sentinel, November 11, 2008

Wisconsin has a shortage of 374 primary-care doctors, and that number is expected to increase in coming years, according to a report from the Wisconsin Council on Medical Education and Workforce. The shortage is primarily in rural areas, but the report estimates that Milwaukee's inner city could use an additional 20 doctors.
