More Doctors Needed, Stat Northeast Ohio is beginning to feel the pinch of a looming doctor shortage as the population, and doctors themselves, age. It's not a new problem. Warnings of physician shortages have been issued for years and deficits in urban and rural areas are commonplace. What's actually being done now to address the issue? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll talk with top medical school administrators and you. Your appointment is confirmed, Thursday morning at 9:00 on 90.3.
