A Projection of Maryland's Health Manpower Needs Through the 1980's.
Coggeshall, Lowell T.; And Others
Recommendations for meeting health manpower and training facility needs in Maryland are made, based on the included Coggeshall report. Demand for health personnel is contrasted with estimated future supplies. A third medical school should be planned and dependence on foreign physicians reduced. Rural areas should improve their own health services. The nursing shortage will be reduced by expanding associate degree programs but other degree and licensed practical nurse programs should be continued. An increase in the number and productivity of dentists can be made by the creation of a second dental school and encouragement of auxiliary training. Information on the needs for allied health professionals should be gathered. Appendixes include demographic tables on doctors and nurses; a list of institutions offering instruction in allied health professions; a counter statement by the State Medical and Chirurgical Faculty; a supplementary pharmacy report recommending expansion of the School of Pharmacy, reduced dependence on out-of-State pharmacists, and development of experimental training programs; a proposal for a State college of allied health sciences; and an admissions report of the Medical School of the University of Maryland.
