The Pipeline to Primary Care Is Drying Up – The Hill

Read article - An opinion piece by Roshini Pinto-Powell, associate professor of medicine and of medical education, in which she discusses the current trend of medical students choosing not to go into primary care. "For PCPs at the bottom of the compensation list, resurrecting and sustaining the notion of medicine as a calling is necessary. More than simply increasing monetary compensation, the healthcare system, our specialist colleagues, and patients need to show by their words and actions that primary care is a valued service," says Pinto-Powell. (Pinto-Powell is participating in this year's Dartmouth Public Voices project.)
