Physician demand continues to increase faster than supply, resulting in a projected total physician shortage of up to 121,900 doctors by 2032, the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC) reports. The fifth annual study, prepared by the Life Science division of IHS Markit for AAMC, reveals that the growing and aging population continues to be a major driver of the updated physician shortage, which is similar to the previous study's projected shortage range for 2030 of between 42,600 and 121,300 doctors.
