Many people have to wait too long to see a doctor. And it could get worse. If, as many people believe, we have a shortage of doctors in the United States, then it follows that we can fix this only by training and hiring more physicians.

As with almost everything in our health care system, though, it's complicated. Some people think there's no shortage at all - just a poor distribution of the doctors we have.

That's the topic of this week's Healthcare Triage.

This episode was adapted from a column Aaron wrote for the Upshot. Links to sources and further reading can be found there: http://www.nytimes.com/2016/11/08/upshot/a-doctor-shortage-lets-take-a-closer-look.html
