 The majority of young physicians don’t have an updated will, power of attorney documents, or end-of-life medical directives in the event of unanticipated accidents or illnesses, according to a report by AMA Insurance. According to the results of a survey, only about one-quarter of physicians under the age of 40 had prepared a will and had power of attorney documents. About one-fifth or respondents had medical or end-of-life directives.
