Description

This book contains five chapters based on papers that were prepared for the Cornell University Medical College Second Conference on Health Policy held in New York City on February 27-28, 1986, plus an introductory chapter and a summary of the discussion written by me as chairman and editor. The title, From Physician Shortage to Patient Shortage: The Uncertain Future of Medical Practice, underscores two of the major changes that are operating to reshape the U.S. health care sector.
