Recommendations l.jpg
Recommendations under-represented among Texas physicians

  • The Legislature should fully support the existing health-related institutions and their expansion efforts before committing additional dollars to new projects.

  • Texas medical schools should continue to increase first-year entering enrollments through 2015, when the Coordinating Board should assess whether additional enrollment increases are necessary.

  • The Legislature should expand efforts such as the Joint Admission Medical Program, to attract and mentor African American and Hispanic students into careers in medicine.


Recommendations16 l.jpg
Recommendations under-represented among Texas physicians

  • Optimally, the state should encourage growth of more first-year residency positions with a goal of 10 percent more first-year, entry-level residency positions than graduating medical students.

  • If the Legislature is able to fully support existing commitments in the state and decides to establish an additional medical school, the South Texas region remains a feasible location.


Recommendations17 l.jpg
Recommendations under-represented among Texas physicians

  • Because the state is attractive to physicians educated and trained elsewhere, Texas should initiate a campaign to attract more of the best physicians educated and trained in other states.

  • Initiatives should be developed to encourage more female physicians to consider practicing in border and non-metropolitan counties.
