Baseline population projections are compared with the effect of a 20% increase or decrease in retirement rates, number of international medical graduates (IMGs) entering the generalist workforce, and number of residency graduates entering the generalist workforce. Baseline population projections using the U.S. Census Bureau's middle series projections are compared with the Bureau's highest and lowest projections. GME = graduate medical education.>
