Report shows Montana Doctors oldest in the nation

The information was compiled by NPR’s State Impact project in Idaho.

It shows Doctors 55 years old and older making up half of Montana’s physician workforce.

Capitol Reporter Dan Boyce says some officials in Montana dispute those figures, but still recognize it as a problem.
