from HealthDay News via Physician's Weekly
Anticipated future shortages of oncology providers may have a serious and specific impact on women’s health care, according to Doximity’s 2019 Women’s Health and Oncologist Workforce Analysis. Doximity used Centers for Medicare & Medicaid Services data, board certification data, and self-reported data on more than 18,000 full-time, board-certified oncology practitioners. 2010 U.S. Census data were used to identify the 50 metropolitan statistical areas (MSAs) with the highest number of women (ages 40 to 75 years) with breast or lung cancer.
