Demand for medical talent continued to grow in 2019, with job opportunities for doctors increasing by 5% nationally, according to a new physician employment report from Doximity.
This increase lags behind 2018’s 7% growth rate, but still reflects the reality of an ongoing physician shortage, with the demand for qualified physicians outpacing the supply.
Doximity compiled this data after examining how many open positions were advertised on its network over the course of 2019 in 50 major U.S. metropolitan areas. Demand varies widely across different local markets, its report said.
