Any practice manager in any medical specialty knows that recruiting, hiring and retaining top talent is tedious, challenging and time-consuming. The not-so-good news for practice managers is that recruiting Orthopedic Surgeons is becoming even more competitive.
Why? Well, there are two main reasons.
First, the growing population of senior citizens in the US is causing the demand for Orthopedics to skyrocket. By 2030, all ‘baby boomers’ will be at least 65 years old. And according to the US Census Bureau, by 2050, there will be some 83.7 million people in America who are 65 and older. With a larger aging population naturally comes a greater demand for hip and knee replacements, spinal fusions and other Orthopedic procedures.
And second, a vast shortage of surgeons is expected to hit the healthcare industry within the next 10-12 years. According to the Association of American Medical Colleges (AAMC), the US will be more than 120,000 surgeons short by 2032.
What’s more, is that a wave of retiring physicians is on the horizon in the Orthopedics specialty, with a majority of today’s surgeons falling between 40 and 60 years of age.
To quickly sum up, the need for Orthopedics is on the rise due to a larger aging population. And a majority of today’s 30,500 Orthopedic Surgeons in the US are nearing retirement age, leaving you and many other practices across the country with vacancies to fill and a limited pool of candidates to choose from.
