How the medical student workforce is changing in the age of data
The medical student market has been on a tear since the Affordable Care Act went into effect in 2014, according to a recent survey by the American Medical Association.
A full 85% of medical students who participated said they’ve enrolled in a new class this year.
But that figure is not all.
According to the survey, a record 60% of graduates are still enrolled in medical school in 2016.
That’s up from 59% in 2017.
And the trend is not going away anytime soon.
“There is a lot of demand for medical students,” said Dr. Christopher Bader, an associate professor at Harvard Medical School who studies medical education.
“That’s the big driver, and that’s why we see it growing.”
The medical school enrollment boom in the last decade: The numbers show that medical students are not just going to go away.
In fact, they’re growing.
The new class of students is filled with medical students, who, despite not graduating from medical school, are more than happy to take on the responsibility of getting patients into care.
“We’re doing what we always do, and we’re going to get it right,” said M. Teresa Kohn, a medical student at the University of Wisconsin-Madison who is one of the founding members of the medical students union.
The students say they expect to continue to work in an effort to keep up with the demand, despite a shortage of physicians.
The medical students say the demand for their services is outpacing the supply, and there is a huge market for the job.
“It’s a huge opportunity,” said Kohn.
“The more doctors we have, the better our ability to keep providing care.”
That’s because medical school is one important component of a medical degree.
It’s what doctors are looking to get into when they become licensed and are willing to do more research, learn about a patient, and possibly even become a doctor themselves.
The average price of a bachelor’s degree in the United States is about $90,000, according the American Association of University Professors.
And medical school tuition is expensive.
A recent survey of medical school students found that a third of medical student respondents paid more than $100,000 to attend medical school.
But the new medical students’ enthusiasm is a sign that they are ready to make money and make a difference in their communities.
Many of them are in underserved communities that often don’t have the financial means to afford medical school and don’t want to put themselves in harm’s way, said Dr in the medical education department at the hospital where Kohn is working.
Kohn said she wants to be a role model for the future.
“I want to make a change in a community that’s not as well off as it could be,” she said.
“And I want to help people, because I want them to get better.”
