Generalist Physician Initiatives in U.S. Medical Schools.
Keyes-Welch, Michelle; Martin, Debbie
This report presents responses from 126 medical school deans to a 1993 survey designed to assess the current status of generalist initiatives within medical schools. The survey questions addressed: aspects of the institution's mission; generalist physician involvement in key committees within the medical school; preferential admission programs and financial aid assistance available to medical students interested in the generalist specialties; and the presence of political pressure on the school to increase the production of generalist physicians. A preliminary analysis includes a summary of the responses. The bulk of the report contains program descriptions of initiatives in 107 medical schools to promote interest in generalism. Organized by state, each description includes a brief summary of the school's initiative (both implemented and proposed) as well as the name of a contact person. The report contains two indexes: an index of existing generalist initiatives and revised programs; and an index of newly established or proposed generalist initiatives. (GLR)
