    GBA Webinar: The State of the Physician Workforce and Policy Implications

    AAMC-member medical schools and teaching hospitals play a crucial role in preparing future physicians who help create a healthier future for all. With the AAMC projecting a physician shortage between 37,800 and 124,000 physicians by 2034, programs that invest in training future doctors are more crucial now than ever before. This 90-minute webinar, hosted by the Group on Business Affairs Emerging Issues Committee, kicked off with an overview of physician workforce projection data, as well as factors influencing workforce needs. Following this overview, there was an update of current policy considerations in Washington, including the push for more residency slots. The webinar also provided perspectives on health care delivery mechanisms, including telemedicine, and how this relates to access to care.
