Fourteen categories of manpower, comprising 75 percent of the total health work force requiring formal training of six months or more in Alabama, are studied in this preliminary report. They are physicians, dentists, optometrists, pharmacists, medical technologists, certified laboratory assistants, sanitarians, medical records clerks, radiologic technologists, family practice physician assistants, nurse midwives, registered nurses, licensed practical nurses, and physical therapists. Manpower needs, supplies, and goals are tabulated for each category by Alabama county and district. Approved medical education programs in the state, with their student capacities and requirements, are listed for each occupation. A series of priorities and implementation responsibilities for the state as a whole and in each category has been drawn up. Several projects in innovative health manpower development are described. The appendix contains the number of hospital beds by county and district and tables of selected demographic data. A listing by district of vacant health manpower positions in hospitals is also given.
