Medical Education in South Carolina.
South Carolina Commission on Higher Education, Columbia.
In 1971 the South Carolina Commission on Higher Education charged a Special Medical Education Committee to examine the present structure and advise on future development of educational facilities to meet the physician requirements of the state. The committee did an analysis of the present situation of approximately 100 physicians per 100,000 population in relation to the goal of approximately 130 physicians per 100,000 population and recommended ways of achieving this goal. Among the factors discussed are: the cost of educating a doctor; the present situation at the Medical University of South Carolina; the pool of applicants; the cost of a new medical school; the location of a second medical school; coordination of medical education; and graduate medical education. Specific recommendations regarding locations and facilities are enumerated. (JMF)
