The number of new Female MD's = the number of new Male MD's...That IS news, but NOT the real news---check out this graphic...

One giant step forward BUT we have not moved...Over time the number of female doctors has increased, and in the latest reporting year, has just about reached parity with male doctors.

However, I am interested in the overall trend of the number of MD's created overtime---It is essentially constant.  What is up with that?  Has the population stayed level? No. Has the need for medical doctors decreased? No, again.  So, why is this the case? 5 extra credits points on the next test for the first person to get the correct answer...
