An Answer to the Physician Shortage - 06/20/2017

America faces a looming shortage of primary care physicians (PCPs) who form the backbone of our health care system, a trend that industry experts call a threat to our nation's health. Given that Texas already trails the currently inadequate national trend, we need a comprehensive program to integrate international medical graduates and physicians qualified via the fifth pathway into the workforce. One way to redress this lack of PCPs is to mobilize physicians residing in the United States and allow them to take necessary examinations and allow graduate assistant physicians to be supervised so that they may be absorbed into our health care system.
