Report: Utah Facing a 'Severe' Shortage in Gastroenterology
The Utah Medical Education Council has identified gastroenterology as one of several specialties appearing to be in severe need in a new report analyzing the supply and distribution of physicians in Utah.
In the report — "Utah's Physician Workforce, 2012" (pdf) — UMEC also identified general surgery, rheumatology, internal medicine and cardiology as other specialties appearing to be in severe need.
UMEC's conclusions were based on a 2010 survey of all Utah licensed physicians with a focus on understanding the characteristics and shortfalls of the local workforce.
