ER Physicians



There has been a study done on the amount of emergency room doctors that are available to meet the needs of the hospitals.  As of now, there are many hospitals that do not have enough staff for their emergency room physicians with education in  board certified emergency training.

The study showed in 2005, only fifty percent of the demand of this type of training in hospitals was met.  They are looking into other ways to alleviate these problems, such as giving general doctors more training and relying more on the nurse practitioners and assistants to aid the emergency physicians in the emergency rooms.
