    The physician workforce in South Carolina
    (South Carolina State Library, 2011-10) South Carolina Area Health Education Consortium. Office for Healthcare Workforce Analysis and Planning
    Physicians are perhaps the most critical element in our healthcare system. Having good information about the number and types of physicians available in our state is essential to effective planning for the healthcare needs of our citizens. South Carolina collects information from physicians every two years when they renew their license to practice medicine. The information they provide permits a description of their overall number, characteristics, and workforce participation rates. Our analysis of the physician workforce in South Carolina is based on data collected from physicians who renewed their license to practice during the period April 15 – June 30, 2009. We have limited the analysis to only those physicians who were actively practicing medicine within the state of South Carolina at the time they renewed their license. More recent information will become available sometime during 2012.
