NEW YORK — It’s late on a Tuesday night during the worst measles outbreak in decades, and doctors, nurses and other health-care providers are gathered at a medical center to learn better ways of talking to parents who are reluctant to vaccinate their children.

But this year, the percentage of primary care positions filled by fourth-year medical students was the lowest on record.
