American Neurological Association, Miami, FL.; American Academy of Neurology, Minneapolis, Minn.
The three-year neurology manpower study reported here was directed toward (1) identifying the presently available neurological manpower and the demographic and professional characteristics of neurologists and neurologists-in-training in the United States as of 1971; (2) determining the current and emerging patterns for utilizing neurological manpower in the United States; (3) estimating the needs for neurological manpower in the United States in the coming decade; (4) evaluating the priorities to be accorded needs in the various areas of neurological activities; (5) proposing specific policy recommendations; and (6) identifying areas which require additional study and analysis. The report is organized to reflect the work of three task forces on manpower for patient care, for research, and for education. Each includes a narrative statement with conclusions and recommendations. In addition, there are twenty-three appendixes providing information and data on which the narrative statements were based. The following are representative appendix topics: funded neuroscience projects, 1971; neuropathology for the seventies; biomedical behavior research; patterns of neurologic practice; neurochemistry; the neurologist as educator; continuing education in neurology; survey on neurologic responsibilities; and the neurologist as researcher.
