      Removing residency trained primary care docs to serve as midlevel roles will not help with the overall need for primary care when you can have specialists train unmatched docs. Seems like a better use of the labor pool.

          Again I’m not suggesting removing them completely from their practice nor am I suggesting lower compensation for services they are rendering
          but By taking over what specialist midlevels tasks they will probably provide better service , more appropriate use of testing and lessen specialist burden.
          And it just gives pcp more time to serve their primary purpose which is first line of defence and more stake in the management of their patient
