Abstract

Workforce issues related to physician inactivity are likely to be of greater importance to pediatrics than other specialties, due to the predominance of women entering the pediatric workforce. As greater accountability for both state licensure and board certification are demanded by the public, new challenges will arise regarding processes to ensure that physicians are indeed qualified to provide up-to-date care to their patients.
