A huge shout out to my AMA HOD physician colleagues for voting me to serve on the AMA Council on Medical Service.
October 6, 2022

Many patients wonder why so many physicians are retiring.  Physicians often are in training (medical school, residency, fellowship) till they are 35 years of age.  They delay starting a family because they have no control over where their next job is since the process is a blind computer match for their next job.  When they begin their first job, they have high student debt that is often higher than most home mortgages.  After a few years, they wonder why they are not getting pay raises like their friends. 
The AMA has done this study and found that physician salaries actually decreased 1-2% each year when looking at inflation.
