ABSTRACT:

Background and Objective
​Changes to the structure and nature of resident duty hour assignments can create compensatory workforce needs in hospital or outpatient settings to ensure appropriate patient care. The objective of this study was to understand what, if any, adjustments children's hospitals have made in staffing and assignments of specific duties during the past 2 years as a result of residency duty hour changes, and what changes are anticipated in the upcoming 2 years.

Methods

ABSTRACT:

Objective
Historically, most pediatric subspecialists have conducted their clinical work in academic health centers. However, increases in the absolute numbers of pediatric subspecialists in past decades, combined with greater concentrations of children in urban and suburban settings, might result in more opportunities for pediatric subspecialists to enter private practice. Our goal was to assess the proportions of subspecialists in private practice.

Methods
We surveyed a stratified, random, national sample...

ABSTRACT:

Objective
There is little nationally representative information describing the current manner in which nurse practitioners(NPs) and physician assistants (PAs) work in pediatric practices and their professional activities. To understand better the current NP and PA workforce in pediatric primary and subspecialty care, we conducted a national survey of pediatricians.

Methods
A survey study of a random national sample of 498 pediatric generalists and 1696 subspecialists in the United States was...

ABSTRACT:

For several decades, the American Board of Pediatrics (ABP) has assimilated workforce data using questionnaires administered in association with its various examinations and through a tracking system that provides an annual update of residents and fellows in training. These data provide critical information regarding trainees and practitioners in pediatrics and the overall workforce landscape. In 2006, The Journal published a series of workforce reports for general pediatrics and the 13 subspecialties for which the ABP currently administered examinations. The first report...

ABSTRACT:

Historically, the specialties classified as "primary care" have been pediatrics, internal medicine, and family medicine. Often, primary care disciplines are aggregated in workforce or career-preference studies, and any differences among them are not assessed or reported. However, such aggregation is likely unwarranted and may actually lead to false or misguided policy direction in the name of "primary care disciplines" when, in fact, there may be substantive differences among these specialties. We examine here the data available to assess whether the physicians who make up 2 of the...
