Record Number of Physicians in Wyoming in 2013
CHEYENNE, Wyo. (AP) — The Wyoming Board of Medicine says a record number of physicians received licenses to practice medicine in the state last year.
The board issued 383 new physician licenses in 2013, a 10 percent increase over the previous year. There were a total of 3,235 licensed physicians in the state last year.
Board President Jeffrey D. Storey attributed much of the growth in physician licensing to a streamlined licensing processes and non-traditional practice models, including telemedicine.
