2018 Snapshot: Vermont Primary Care Workforce

In Vermont, during the three-year period of 2013-2016, the number of primary care practitioners grew; however, the shortage of adult primary care practitioners continued statewide.  Primary care practitioners include physicians, advanced practice registered nurses, certified nurse midwives, and certified physician assistants who work at primary care practice sites in Vermont.  The largest shortfall continues in primary care internal medicine whose practitioners care for adults.  The strongest growth was in family medicine whose practitioners care for both adults and children.  The need for primary care practitioners who care for adults was further supported by the percentage of practitioners limiting or closing their practice to new patients.  In 2016, 65% of internal medicine physicians reported limiting or not accepting new patients.
