Our take: Family medicine is becoming a losing career choice for many medical students, according to an ABC News article. Students are plagued with thoughts of being well respected and getting out of debt as they choose their career, resulting in family medicine being left behind. However, this could be a growing problem for the United States. Nisha Nathan, a reporter from ABC News wrote about it:
"The United States will require at least 52,000 more family doctors in the year 2025 to keep up with the growing and increasingly older U.S. population, a new study found.
The predictions also reflect the passage of the Affordable Care Act a change that will expand health insurance coverage to an additional 38 million Americans."
