Most internists don't plan to stay in primary care

Fox News / Reuters, December 5, 2012

That suggests fewer generalists will be entering the workforce, researchers said—possibly exacerbating the primary care doctor shortage in parts of the United States. "I think this was a much needed, long overdue paper, and really kind of eye-opening," said economist and health policy researcher Amitabh Chandra from Harvard University in Cambridge, Massachusetts.
