Number of Geriatricians Falls Short as Boomers Enter Retirement, Journal Reports
The number of geriatricians is declining even as baby boomers become “senior boomers,” bringing with them multiple chronic conditions that their physicians might not be adequately trained to manage, according to a series of articles and commentaries in the May issue of Academic Medicine, a publication of the Association of American Medical Colleges.
The articles outline a number of ways medical schools can and, the authors argue, should step up their geriatric training.
I've noted this problem in the past, please see:
