This document reviews the state of medical and dental education in Texas, 1974-80. Recommendations suggest: (1) The Advisory Committee and the Task Force for Medical and Dental Education would be continued as planning bodies to be convened at least once every two years. (2) No new medical or dental schools are recommended since the state will be able to meet current demands for medical and dental manpower if: (a) the trends of the past six years continue, and (b) the presently approved medical and dental schools are expanded to their currently approved optimum capacities. (3) Increased State of Texas support is recommended to continue augmentation of primary care education in all Texas medical schools for undergraduate medical students, and resident physicians in hospitals and in other clinical facilities. Working papers in the document deal with additional manpower, medical and dental school admissions, underrepresentation of minority students in medical and dental schools in Texas, curricula and educational methodologies, cost and financial implications, and future studies.
