California faces a dramatic shortage of health care professionals over the next decade, and the state should take steps now to deal with the problem, according to a new report.

“In just 10 years … California is projected to face a shortfall of more than 4,100 primary care clinicians and 600,000 home care workers, and will have only two-thirds of the psychiatrists it needs,” said the study, Meeting the Demand for Health, the Final Report of the California Future Health Workforce Commission.
