Source #2

This source helps plan what is needed to fill the shortages of physicians in the future. There will be a higher amount of people that apply for medical school, and this article says that the American Medical Association believes that the number of people accepted should be increased to cover the shortage. This would end up costing more money, but the taxpayers will have to sacrifice in order to cover the national shortage of our doctors. This will lead to the number of doctors coming back up.

I can use this source to get an idea of how many people are going to go through the process to replace the physicians and other doctors we will be losing. I can also use it to get an idea of how schools will handle the situation.

Another source I need is one that will give me information on what it would be like with a shortage of physicians. Would we struggle? What would we do?
