Negligence Claims Aren’t To Blame for Physician Shortage
Negligence Claims Aren’t To Blame for Physician Shortage, Illinois Medical Malpractice Lawyer Says
A Northwestern School of Medicine study overstates the impact of medical negligence litigation on the state’s supply of physicians, Illinois medical malpractice attorney Patrick A. Salvi says.
A recently released Northwestern medicine school study wrongly tries to blame the state’s medical liability environment for driving new physicians to practice elsewhere, Illinois medical malpractice lawyer Patrick A. Salvi says.
According to a story on the Feinberg School of Medicine website, the study found that half of all graduating Illinois medical students leave the state to practice, a trend that could soon lead to a shortage of doctors within the state, especially in rural areas.
