Ensuring an adequate physician workforce depends on the number, training, specialty, and location of physicians relative to the population’s needs (34, 35).
In 2015, of the 870,900 active physicians, general primary care specialists comprised 37%, primary care subspecialists comprised 11%, and all other specialists comprised the remaining 52%. Between 2005 and 2015, the rate of all active physicians increased 5%, from 258 to 271 per 100,000 resident population. Of these, the rate of general primary care specialists remained relatively stable, around 101 per 100,000 resident population, while the rate of primary care subspecialists increased 33% from 22 to 29 per 100,000 resident population; the rate of all other specialists increased 5% from 134 to 141 per 100,000 resident population (Table 85).
NOTES: Specialty is self-designated. General primary care specialists were formerly referred to as generalists. The total U.S. resident population was used to calculate all rates.

In just three years, physician burnout increased from 45.5% to 54.4%. New research found that three factors contribute: The doctor-patient relationship has been morphed into an insurance company-client relationship; Feelings of cynicism; and Lack of enthusiasm for work.
Medical scribes result in a "significant reduction" in the time doctors spend writing and editing clinical notes, a new study finds. More than 60% of patients reported an improved visit, and physicians experienced greater job satisfaction, making scribes a potential weapon against burnout.
