: Osteopathic doctors may help alleviate rural doc shortage
from The Washington Post
The national shortfall of family doctors, pediatricians and other generalists is expected to reach 52,000 by 2025. And only 9 percent of physicians practice in rural areas, where 20 percent of the U.S. population lives. "That's where osteopaths have been largely helpful — in primary care and especially for those in need," said NRHA's Brock Slabach. And their footprint appears to be growing.
