Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education, Boulder, CO.
The medical graduates from the Western Interstate Commission for Higher Education (WICHE) Student Exchange Programs (SEP) are studied in their relation to the medical manpower of the sending states. Participating schools were: University of California (Los Angeles, Irvine, and San Francisco branches); Loma Linda University; Stanford University; University of Southern California; University of Colorado Medical Center; University of Oregon Health Sciences Center; University of Utah; and University of Washington. "Sending" states in medicine during the period covered by this report were: Alaska; Arizona; Hawaii; Idaho; Montana; Nevada; New Mexico; and Wyoming. Highlighted findings are that: 33 percent of SEP graduates through 1970 were located in 1976 in the home state that had sent them as exchange students; the total number of physicians graduated with the M.D. during the SEP-era located in the sending state exceeds the number of SEP graduates sent by that state in each of the sending states; of the total SEP-era graduates from all schools located in the sending states, the SEP graduates represent 5 percent; graduates of the WICHE schools constitute 16 percent of all SEP-era graduates located in the eight states combined; out of a total of 29,948 SEP-era graduates located in the WICHE region, 383, or 1.3 percent are SEP graduates; and 91 SEP graduates were located in the United States outside the WICHE region, but 2,969 SEP-era graduates of institutions outside the region were located in the eight sending states.
