Council Calls on White House to Convene Conference on Physician and Nurse Supply
Date:3/26/2008

education (GME) positions at the nation's teaching hospitals. The Council also called for GME capacity to be increased by approximately 30 percent. The Council warned that lifting the current cap Congress has imposed on Medicare-based funding for GME, while necessary, will not be enough. Growth in GME, the Council determined, should be addressed within the context of a comprehensive reassessment of the respective funding roles of government and the private sector.

"We must rethink how this country educates nurses and doctors to ensure we have the health professionals we need," maintains Richard "Buz" Cooper, M.D., professor of medicine at the University of Pennsylvania and co-chair of the Council. "Our access to healthcare -- and our children's access -- depends on what we do today to solve this critical challenge."
