Residency program aims to combat Florida doctor shortage
from USA Today
A new medical residency program in southwest Florida aims to train young physicians as family practice doctors in an already medically under-served community, and ideally, persuade them to set up shop in the area once their residency is complete. As part of post-medical-school-training requirements, new doctors work for three years in hospitals and medical clinics to learn about medical specialties and to get a real-world education in treating patients. Doctors must successfully complete residency programs before they are free to practice on their own.
