Crain’s New York Business
The 2021 job market for physicians completing residency was not as strong as it was pre-pandemic, and a lack of diversity among the resident population persists, according to a new report from the Center for Health Workforce Studies.
New York’s graduating physicians had fewer job options in 2021 compared to 2019, the survey found. About 35% of residents reported it was difficult to find a satisfactory job; 38% of them attributed the issue to a lack of jobs overall, and 38% said it was hard to find a satisfactory job because there weren’t many options in the places they most wanted to work. Furthermore, 21% of residents said they had to change post-graduation plans because of limited job opportunities.
