Meeting Ohio's Needs for M.D.s Through 1980 and Beyond.
Academy for Educational Development, Inc., New York, NY.
Today health care in the U.S. is facing a shortage of personnel that has never been surpassed. All states must begin to resolve for themselves the problems that are occurring and will occur within the next decade. This document presents the results of a study made in the state of Ohio to determine the present needs of medical manpower in the state, the projected need for physicians, and the methods by which a shortage of physicians may be alleviated. Planning for such problems requires that several central questions be answered: (1) What is the relationship of medical education to the means for delivery of medical care to the people of Ohio, and how can this relationship be improved? (2) How many Doctor of Medicine degree recipients should be graduated annually in Ohio by 1980, and how do current expansion plans of the 4 existing colleges of medicine compare with these needs? and (3) If more Doctors of Medicine are needed by 1980 than will be supplied through current expansion plans, where should one or more new colleges of medicine be located? Further, should plans for new medical schools call for the same kind of large-scale medical center that has embodied the best in medical education in past decades, or should expansion take the form of a bold new departure in medical education? These and other questions are considered. (HS)
