Medical Education for Tennessee. A Report of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission.
Boone, Jerry N.; Woods, Myra S.
This study of medical education was conducted as a part of the Tennessee Higher Education Commission's responsibility to design a master plan for higher education in Tennessee. It provides a background of information on Tennessee's needs for physicians and on the production of physicians by the three medical schools in the state. The study examines the need for additional medical education at both undergraduate and graduate levels and analyzes the question of whether Tennessee needs another medical school. It is not concerned with details of curriculum, except as these may have an effect on the supply of physicians. Instead, it concentrates on the broader public policy question of providing necessary training programs. The study assumes that whatever changes and expansion takes place, the curricula and programs will be operated at a high level of quality. (Author)
