The list is out. Medical Economics compiled the 20 schools producing the fewest primary care physicians. Yes, this is a worst-of list. And yes, we’re still optimists. But we’re also realistic. These “poor-producing” schools are actually some of the best in the nation. Johns Hopkins University School of Medicine, Duke University, Yale-New Haven Hospital stand out on an uber-prestigious list. It looks like our finest institutions are preparing our brightest young minds to do anything but good old-fashioned family medicine. And that is a bit disappointing.
