Virginia State General Assembly, Richmond. Senate.
This document presents the report of the Commission to Study the Advisability and Feasibility of Utilizing Certain Medical Facilities as an Affiliated Operation of the University of Virginia School of Medicine. Emphasis is placed on health manpower and physician needs, physician supply in Virginia, and increasing physician supply in Virginia. As a result of the study, four recommendations suggest: (1) Affiliated programs between the University of Virginia School of Medicine and Medical Center and certain other medical communities to increase health manpower and achieve other objectives are highly desirable and feasible, and further development and expansion of such programs should be undertaken immediately. (2) The University of Virginia School of Medicine should be provided faculty and administrative budgetary support in the coming biennium for the continued development and implementation of affiliated programs already initiated in Roanoke and Winchester. (3) More detailed planning for necessary curriculum changes, the inclusion of other communities, housing, communications, and other logistical problems related to affiliated programs should be specifically studied and planned by the Commission during the next biennium. (4) The University of Virginia School of Medicine and Medical Center should plan continually for future health manpower needs in the State and should prepare for their role in fulfilling these needs.
