Residents say no to Pennsylvania
NEWS IN BRIEF — Posted May 24, 2004
Young doctors are training at eight medical schools in Pennsylvania, but most aren't sticking around after that, according to a 2004 Assn. of American Medical Colleges survey. Residents say they believe the practice environment is deteriorating in Pennsylvania.
Less than half (41%) of internists plan to stay in the state after residency, as do 28% of obstetricians-gynecologists and 10% of anesthesiologists. None of the residents in neurosurgery, radiology or orthopedic surgery intend to stay.
