Recently I've become concerned with the issue of under supply of all levels of medical and healthcare workers. We can't find enough doctors to provide care for underserved areas, we have to import foreign and traveling nurses because we are not producing enough ourselves for inner city medical centers, and even phlebotomists are in short supply.

It's a complex issue that requires complex solutions. The analogy that comes to mind is of the homeless mentally ill about which I know a fair amount.  The similarity is that both require solutions in many areas - governmental, private, corporate, individual - that seem so difficult to achieve that we don't try anymore . Or as is famously said we kick it like a can down the road.

 I, you, and everyone should insist that there be a national examination and set of solutions to our human resource imbalance in healthcare.  If not now, when?
