A workforce imperative: Change medical education
Twenty years ago, TAFP called for changes in medical education to ensure Texas would have the primary care physician workforce needed to care for a rapidly growing population. Now, the state is in a perilous position as academic institutions have no financial incentive to train new primary care physicians and medical students are actively discouraged from these disciplines. In a frustratingly obstinate system, stakeholders must now race to craft policies to reverse the damage of inaction.
