WNPR on NPR: New Medical School Wants To Build Ranks Of Primary Care Doctors

Here’s a story I did that aired this morning on NPR’s Morning Edition.  And here’s a nugget:

Under the Affordable Care Act, millions more people with insurance may be headed to the doctor’s office. That means the medical system will need more doctors, nurses, physician assistants, and other health care workers to meet the demand. Quinnipiac is one of about a dozen new medical schools cropping up, and it’s spending $100 million just to get up and running.

Enjoy.
