Study finds doctors reducing work hours, potentially worsening shortage of primary care docs

AP/Yahoo News, February 24, 2010
American doctors have steadily cut their work hours over the past decade, a new study finds, something that experts say may only worsen the U.S. healthcare situation. Average hours dropped from about 55 to 51 hours per week from 1996 to 2008, according to the analysis. That's the equivalent of losing 36,000 doctors in a decade, according to the researchers.
