10 places where they're still looking for good doctors


Conventional wisdom says a widespread physician glut has helped to limit physician compensation in managed care, but a recent survey by a recruiting firm suggests that the picture is not that simple. The company interviewed more than 4,500 hospitals and 2,500 medical groups of five physicians or more, and identified 10 markets in which physicians — especially primary care physicians — are still being actively sought. Surprisingly, southern California makes the list. "Though some physicians are leaving Los Angeles due to the downward financial pressure imposed by managed care," the recruiters explain, "a variety of doctors are needed in the growing outlying areas of the city."
