More than 60% of physicians work in practices with 10 physicians or fewer, and that practice size didn’t change much between 2012 and 2014, the American Medical Association says in a new study.

“These data show that the majority (60.7%) of physicians were in small practices of 10 or fewer physicians, and that practice size changed very little between 2012 and 2014 in the face of profound structural reforms to healthcare delivery,” AMA President-elect Andrew W. Gurman, MD, said in prepared remarks.
