Supply and Distribution of Primary Care Physicians and Medical School Enrollments in Texas
The search for policy options to contain health-care costs has sparked renewed national interest in reducing medical school enrollments. Concurrently, the goals of improving the specialty and geographic distribution of physicians have proved elusive both at the state and national levels. This study reexamines and reaffirms the conclusions of an earlier study that suggested enrollment reductions in Texas might decrease rather than increase the supply of primary care and rural physicians.
