Abstract:
Provides analysis, results, and implications of a supply and demand workforce model for physicians practicing physical and rehabilitation medicine. Explicitly addresses: (1) the supply implications of maintaining current (1994-1995) output of physiatrists from residency programs; (2) the implications of continued growth of managed care on the demand for the services of physiatrists; (3) likely future supply and demand conditions; and (4) strategies to adapt to future conditions. Projects an aggregate excess in demand for physical and rehabilitation specialists through the year 2000, though more aggressive growth of managed care could affect that projection.
