The foreign medical graduate and public policy : a discussion of the issues and options by Paul J Feldstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The large inflow of Foreign Medical Graduates (FMGs) into the U.S. is cited and four issues discussed. They are: (1) the belief that the fmg is less qualified than the U.S. medical graduate and thus contributes to the decline in quality of medical care; (2) the loss of scarce manpower from less developed countries that have greater needs than the U.S. for medical care and for physicians; (3) the lessening of opportunity for large numbers of U.S. citizens to become physicians; and (4) if trends continue, then together with the recently increased capacity of U.S. medical schools, there will be an oversupply of physicians in the U.S. which could lead to adverse competitive behavior, unnecessary care, and higher costs. Each of these concerns is examined together with several alternatives for alleviating each concern and the probable consequences of each alternative. It is concluded that the differential effects of a reduction in FMGs alone does not appear to be the solution to any of the issues, nor is it realistic. The differential effects of a reduction in FMGs on the population they serve may more than outweigh any benefits from such arbitrary reductions. (Lbh)
Inflation : its impact on medical training programs by Paul J Feldstein( Book )

3 editions published in 1975 in English and held by 9 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

The unusually high rate of inflation has produced a clear demand for more vigorous government action to lower the rate of price increase, including increases for health professional schools. The concern coincides with Congressional debate surrounding the renewal of the entire structure of federal support for the education of physicians, dentists, optometrists, and others. Two issues are addressed: (1) what has been the impact of inflation on the costs of health professional education, and (2) how will schools meet the growing burden? A brief overview is presented of both the structure of school costs and estimates of how they have been changing. Attention is paid not only to what has been happening but also to what is likely to occur. These estimates are balanced by a discussion of what has been and is likely to be the school response to cost pressures. Methods of cutting costs as well as increasing revenues are examined. The discussion offers a background for analyzing the impact on school financing of anti-inflationary policies; I.E., a tight monetary policy and expenditure reducing fiscal policy which includes cuts in federal support. Emphasis throughout the paper is on medical and dental schools. (Lbh)
