Idaho feels the pinch of family physician shortage
Many classmates of Boise family physician Chip Roser, MD, became neurologists, cardiologists, pathologists, dermatologists or other "-gists." Roser chose the path of family medicine, with potentially lower pay and longer hours. But in a recent national survey, almost half of family practice doctors said they would get out if they could. That is potentially devastating news for Idaho, which already has fewer doctors per capita than any other state.
