Need more younger docs to replace retiring Baby Boomers

Older physicians, of the Baby Boomer Generation, generally have higher productivity than their younger colleagues in Generation X and the Millennial Generation, according to the data firm Truven Health Analytics.  Truven has published a manpower comparison statistic for two specialties.

  • 1.6 internists
  • 2 pediatricians
