    No one gets it right, thats why Texas is to be commended for their recent legislation. Increasing med school enrollment a little bit isn't going to help a lot. Unless legislation changes the way physicians are paid the u.s grad isn't going into primary care.Following California's list blindly is a bigger contributor to the shortage.
    Well, he's had it in for me ever since I "kinda" ran over his dog. Actually, replace "kinda" with "repeatedly," and replace "dog" with "son."

    2000 residency slot increase being pushed for in health care reform bill

    http://online.wsj.com/article/SB125928189292865761.html

    'Now, some Democrats are preparing to press for a more limited expansion of residency slots once the Senate begins hashing out the bill on the floor next week. Sen. Charles Schumer of New York plans to introduce an amendment that would add about 2,000 residency spots to the current 100,000. The amendment would give first priority to primary-care doctors and general surgeons.'

    If successful, any idea when it would be first implemented?

    They want to include it in the health reform bill. The redistribution of slots amendment will allow 1000 slots to be redistributed, and was to take place after July 2011 (for the 2012 match). So I would assume they would start this around 2011 as well. If the bill is delayed then the slot increase might be implemented in 2012.

    Fantastic idea and I hope it passes, but I still haven't heard any ideas about making primary more personal and less about the number of patients you see in a day. Compensation is also an issue for PC doctors.

    Can the mods please make a sticky on future residency slot trends and merge my previous threads into one?
