This report is the second of the annual reports prepared by this Committee. The Committee addressed itself in this report primarily to what it viewed as the most pressing issue - making recommendations for the number of individuals who should be supported by the research training programs of the National Institutes of Health and the Alcohol, Drug Abuse, and Mental Health Administration during fiscal years 1977 and 1978 in each of four broad fields: basic medical sciences, behavioral sciences, clinical sciences, and health services research. Chapter I presents an introduction and recommendation. Chapter II is a national overview of research training the biomedical and behavioral sciences. Chapter III is an assessment of manpower needs. Chapter IV considers future directions; included are four areas the Committee believes need further attention. Also included are extensive appendices with related information. (RH)
