(WDAY TV) -- Across the country there's growing concern that there won't be enough doctors when the federal health care law takes effect.

North Dakota already has a shortage of family doctors. The shortage is estimated around 100 to 150, and it's expected to grow to 300 in the next decade.

Additional doctors are going to be needed to deal with the health care law,

also handle a growing population and replace retiring doctors. UND is expanding medical school classes and residency programs and seeking to keep more graduates in state.
