Health Professions Education Extension Amendments of 1992. Conference Report, 2d Session. (To accompany H.R. 3508, 102d Congress, 2d Session.)
Congress of the U.S., Washington, DC. House.
This conference report contains a proposed alternative amendment to the Public Health Service Act to reconcile differences between the Senate and House amendments. The bulk of the document presents the proposed revisions to: Title I on health professions education; Title II concerning nurse education; and Title III offering miscellaneous provisions (e.g., establishment of various councils and commissions; authorizing a study regarding clinical laboratory technologists for medically underserved and rural communities; expanding the locations of certain clinical traineeships; and authorizing grants for residency training programs in emergency medicine, and for a study on effectiveness of health professions programs). Following the amendment is a statement by the Committee listing changes in the amendment by section number, and explaining the reasons for many of the more significant changes item by item. The introduction to this statement makes clear that this amendment does not simply reauthorize a previous program but restructures the program and related authorization levels to place greater emphasis on activities to improve health care access and delivery by increasing the training of health care providers, especially providers of primary care services in medically underserved areas.
