Recruiting and Retaining Federal Physicians and Dentists: Problems, Progress, and Actions Needed for the Future. Report to the Congress by the Comptroller General of the United States.
Comptroller General of the U.S., Washington, DC.
The Veterans Administration, Department of Defense, and Public Health Service are each experiencing some problems in the recruitment of physicians. Except for certain specialties, the General Accounting Office found no serious problems in either recruiting or retaining dentists in any of these agencies. It is difficult to identify and assess retention problems since in most cases agencies have not established retention goals against which success or failure can be measured. Also, most of the programs established to help alleviate recruitment and retention problems have not been in operation long enough to effectively measure their long-range impact. Whether recruitment or retention problems continue to exist depends to a great extent on the future supply and demand of physicians and dentists. Some charts and tables serve as illustrations.
