Presented in this final volume are the Graduate Medical Education National Advisory Committee (GMENAC) members' commentaries and appendix. Included are: the members and staff of GMENAC; a preface; individual member's commentaries; appendices that include GMENAC recommendations from each of the other six volumes; a cross reference of GMENAC recommendations; official GMENAC votes on final report volumes; and GMENAC's charter. Recommendations are given from the other six volumes: Summary Report (Volume I); Modeling, Research and Data Technical Panel (Volume II); Geographic Distribution Technical Panel (Volume III); Financing Technical Panel (Volume IV); Educational Environment Technical Panel (Volume V); and Nonphysician Health Care Provider Technical Panel (Volume VI). The recommendations are aimed at achieving five manpower goals: (1) to achieve a balance between supply and requirements of physicians in the 1990s, while assuring representation of minority groups; (2) to integrate manpower planning of physicians and nonphysician providers when their services are needed; (3) to achieve a better geographic distribution of physicians and to improve health service in small areas; (4) to improve specialty and geographic distribution of physicians through financing mechanisms for medical education, graduate education, and practice; and (5) to support research for the next phases of health manpower planning.
