After nearly 20 years as an emergency physician, I left the profession I once loved. I’m not the only one.
According to a new report from data analytics firm Definitive Healthcare, 117,000 doctors left medicine in 2021. Each departure costs the healthcare system about $500,000 to find a replacement – $58 billion last year alone – and the ripple effect has already resulted in worsening medical care for all of us.
