Payment reform and solutions to challenges facing primary care addressed in policy papers
Date:4/24/2009

Dr. Harris concluded.

Together, the ACP policy papers point out that the long pipeline of medical education and training and the retirement and career changes of older physicians necessitate that the nation have a constant influx of new students embarking on medical careers. Because it takes a minimum of seven years to train a physician in a primary care specialty, it is imperative that policymakers take immediate, comprehensive and sustained action to avert the impending collapse of primary care.
