The American Federation for Medical Research Says Daschle Must Cure Clinical Research Crisis if Change Is To Take Hold in U.S. Health Care System
Date:12/11/2008

has decreased significantly in recent years.

According to the NIH, the average age of physician scientists in 1980 was 39. By 2015, the average age is expected to be 52. If action is not taken now, the U.S. will face a critical shortage of qualified physician investigators within the next decade, creating a massive knowledge gap between aging physicians and the next generation of physicians.

"The cost of not advancing research and training future physician scientists is one that will be paid by the entire world. The United States is a global feeder pool of physician scientists," said Buchman. "A further breakdown in clinical research and failure to revitalize the physician-scientist workforce of the future will impact medical breakthroughs, treatments and critical training throughout the world. The pharmaceutical industry cannot be counted on to undertake clinical research alone, and from an economic standpoint, clinical research dollars are being focused away from the U.S. and concentrated on China and India."

The AFMR is an international, multi-disciplinary association of physician scientists engaged in all areas of patient-oriented clinical, translational and laboratory research. The organization promotes understanding of advances in the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of disease, facilitates the exchange of ideas and information among physicians and investigators concerned with the treatment of disease and works to improve public health by fostering research across medical disciplines through public policy initiatives and educational programs. The AFMR also works to develop future generations of clinical researchers through its own programs, while encouraging public, private, and governmental investment in such initiatives.
