Abstract: The aim of this paper is presentation of the medical personnel (doctors, nurses and midwife) aging phenomenon against the background of the aging Polish society. The growing share in the structure of medical professionals with the license in the age group: “55-64 years” and “65 years and more”, with a relatively small and decreasing participation of young people, threatens the occurrence of the lack of the so-called generational replacement. This is happening with the simultaneous occurrence of the phenomenon of an aging population that raises the increased demand for strictly medical and care services, the need to develop a long-term care system, rehabilitation, etc. Attention was paid to the current problems and those that may arise and deepen in the near future.
