Doctor shortage?

I talked with a Washington University professor who's been studying health care reform for years, and with the President of BJC.  Both mentioned a shortage of doctors.  Apparently, baby boomer generation physicians are beginning to retire just as the new health care bill will add 32 million patients to the system.  It is expected that primary care physicians will be in shortest supply.  I was told we need to graduate 125 thousand new doctors.
