So true in indian context also .by the time a doctor is ready for practice ,he is already 35yrs age ,and prime time of age is behind him/her,and contemporaries are well settled .so frustrating in medical profession now a days.

While in the short term, the hospital/health system community works on creating more satisfying practice venues for physicians, this study highlights how we're also going to have to be the ones to encourage young adults to consider medicine a worthy career path. Otherwise, it will remain invisible to other career choices and the supply problem will continue to go unaddressed.

There does not seem to be a key for these charts. They do not make sense without one. Have I missed something?

No doubt this is a difficult time with so many things changing at once, but I continue to see this as the beginning of the best time for US healthcare.

This 60% discontent percentage has been the same for over a decade.
