More residencies, cool it on the medical schools
The Texas Higher Education Coordinating Board has a new report on undergraduate medical education. You can download the giant pdf here but I'm going to read it today so you don't have to.
But just a tip: the first recommendation in the executive summary says:
"Additional medical schools should not be established or opened until the number of first-year physician residency positions exceeds the number of graduating medical student by 10 percent."
I think I'm going to like this report because I told you so.
