Does MD have enough MDs?

November 7, 2011 at 1:23 am Leave a comment

The health care reform package passed by Congress could bring insurance coverage to hundreds of thousands of Marylanders. In this April 2010 Maryland Morning piece, I report on whether there are enough doctors to handle them (probably not). Then Sheilah Kast talks to medical student Pooja Aggarwal about her decision whether or not to go into primary care, where the physician shortage is most pronounced.

This is Maryland Morning‘s second installment in “Diagnosis: Healthcare Reform’s Impact on Marylanders.”

Read Pooja Aggarwal’s Baltimore Sun commentary, “I Probably Won’t Be Your Family Doctor.”
