More med student spots

Data released at the Annual Physician Workforce Research Conference, projects that from 2002-2003 there will be a 30% enrollment increase, nearing well over 21,000 new medical students by 2017-2018. With the new and occupied desks over the next few years, 55% of those will be accompanied by students in public medical schools; the southern regions of the U.S. making up for a good amount of the increase now through 2017.

This is exciting news for the aspiring first year medical students. Depending on how you want to see it, I am sure to them, the glass is only half full waiting to be overflowed by the endless opportunities and possibilities.
