A new American Association of Medical Colleges (AAMC) report increases its projected shortage of U.S. physicians. The report estimates a shortage of 61,700-94,700 physicians by 2025, which is up from the 2015 projection of a shortage of 46,100-90,400 physicians.

The 2016 AAMC projection is based on updated supply and demand data and medical school graduate data applied to microsimulation supply and demand models used in prior years’ models. Of the projected shortage, 14,900-35,600 are estimated to be primary care physicians, while 37,400-60,300 will be for non-primary care specialties.
