A surplus of physicians in Israel: Any lessons for the United States and other industrialized countries?

Abstract

In Israel, there is a consensus that there is a surplus of physicians. An examination of the Israeli situation may suggest some responses that will be taken by policy makers and physicians in the United States and other industrialized countries as the supply of physicians continues to increase. Specifically, we examine the impact of rising physician supply on the geographic distribution of physicians in Israel, the length of the training period for residency programs, the interaction between physicians and other professionals, and the level of physician incomes compared to other Israeli workers.
