Calman NS, Hauser D, Forte G, Continelli T. New York state physicians: characteristics and distribution in health professional shortage areas. Journal of Urban Health. December 2006.
Along with high numbers of physicians, New York State also has 2.7 million people living in poverty and 3 million without health insurance who are likely to live in areas with few physicians. Nearly 4 million New Yorkers live in communities that have been designated as health professional shortage areas (HPSAs). This study was conducted to examine the physician workforce in New York State and its HPSAs.
