As clinics gear up for the expansion of health insurance, they’re recruiting young doctors. Since last summer, Place, 28, a primary care resident at Northwestern University Feinberg School of Medicine in Chicago, has received hundreds of emails and phone calls from headhunters, recruiting agencies and health clinics. The heavy recruitment means she’ll have no trouble fulfilling her dream of staying in Chicago and working in an underserved area with a largely Hispanic population. She’ll also be able to pay off $160,000 in student loans through a federal program aimed at encouraging doctors to work in areas with physician shortages.
