I loved the article about physician assistants' and nurse practitioners' workloads expected to increase.
Tap PAs, NPs for primary care
Physicians need to get over themselves, just like the makers of horse-drawn buggies did when the first car came out. Medical students aren't lined up out the door to become primary-care providers because it's the lowest-paying physician position. However, they don't want midlevel providers to take over primary care either.
How selfish and close-minded is that? Then they wonder why the ERs and urgent-care centers are being used for primary care.
