A Report on Medical Education: The Training and Retaining of Physicians for Washington.
This report investigates the training and retaining of physicians for Washington. The report concludes: (1) Washington does not have a desperate overall shortage of physicians, but the state is faced with serious physician distribution problems, particularly in urban ghetto and rural areas. (2) The University of Washington's School of Medicine is well along in the development of several major education programs, including a return to an emphasis on family medicine, which have promise of alleviating physician distribution problems. (3) Although Washington would be ill-advised simply to copy all aspects of the Indiana statewide community medical education program, some portions of this program could be used to special advantage in Washington.
