New medical school 'crucial' to Austin
What will Central Texas need in the next decade to offer world class healthcare for a growing population? According to officials at Seton, Texas ranks 42nd in the number of physicians per capita, and in 2016, Seton anticipates a shortage of 770 physicians in Central Texas. The largest deficits will be in specialties like family practice, internal medicine, as well as infectious disease, pulmonology and rheumatology. Seton has committed millions of dollars over the next several years to pay for residency programs both here at Dell Children's Hospital and UMC Brackenridge, and the hope is those residents will say here in Central Texas to practice medicine.
