Please tell me I'm not reading this correctly (apologies for not fully understanding the jargon of medical certification yet). If I wanted to practice general pediatrics inpatient in the future, would I need to pursue additional certification? Or can a board certified general pediatrician still work inpatient?
If this is the future, do you see this being a significant strain on the available workforce? I know many pediatric subspecialties go underfilled, and some research suggests that many fellowships are financially net negative decisions (https://pediatrics.aappublications.org/content/127/2/254)
Edit: Speak of the devil, look what just showed up in my inbox. https://www.medscape.com/slideshow/2019-compensation-pediatrician-6011343?src=WNL_physrep_190529_medstu_comp2019&uac=305007AT&impID=1978438&faf=1#21
23% of pediatricians work in a hospital.
