U.S. Health Manpower Policy: Will the Benefits Justify the Costs?
Morrow, John H.; Edwards, Arch B.
Journal of Medical Education, 51, 10, 791-805, Oct 76
The U.S. is now training and importing new physicians at a rate that will increase the ratio of physicians-to-population by nearly 50 percent: over the next 25 years. Similar increases in the supply of other health manpower will also result from current enrollment levels. Since only marginal, if any, improvements in overall health care will result, current policies need to be reexamined. (LBH)
