Even physician assistants are dissing primary care

So much for the mid-levels taking over primary care:

The most surprising finding of the article is that there is a trend for PAs to choose jobs outside the primary care fields. . .

. . . Nevertheless, Dr. Jones finds “”¦the distribution of PAs in the primary care settings of family medicine, general internal medicine, and general pediatrics was 50.8% in 1996. By 2006, only 36.1% were reportedly practicing in theses settings.”

They know a sinking ship when they see one.
