Q1. Changing the system to become more balanced; that is, how would you attract more people to become primary care physicians:
Suggested ways come from The Robert Graham Center 2009 referenced study:
1. Create more opportunities for students and young physicians to trade debt for service
2. Reduce or resolve disparities in physician income.
3. Admit a greater proportion of students to medical school for primary care
4. Create policies to reduce barriers for which educational debt prevents middle class and poor students from applying to medical school
5. Substantially shift the training of medical students and residents to community, rural and underserved settings.
6. Support primary care departments and residency programs and their roles in teaching and mentoring trainees.
7. Reauthorize and revitalize funding through Title VII, Section 747 of the Public Health Service Act.
8. Study how to make rural areas more likely practice options, especially for women physicians.
9. New medical schools should be public with preference for rural locations.
