Workforce studies regarding the supply and demand of pediatricians are not new. In fact, numerous studies using sophisticated modeling techniques have been published within the past decade. However, most of these studies addressed the entire physician workforce and not just pediatrics. In addition, although some workforce studies indicated that there were too few pediatricians,1-3 contrasting results were found in other studies.4,5There were also studies indicating that appropriate numbers of pediatricians were being trained and that apparent disparities were a result of the assumptions made, data files used, and uncertainty regarding factors such as future demand for services under managed care, gender implications, and geographic distribution.
