We in Kansas are no~ getting enough doctors, dentists, nurs- es, and other heaRh personnel to meet our needs. This atfects every one of us. We see R in the rising costs of medical care, delayed operations, and ~ong w.a~ts ~t the doctor's o~ice. Y~any smaller Kansas comamm- tries are without pl~ysieians or nurses entirely. Our health, well being, our very lives are affected by this manpower shortage. What are L~e reasons for this situation? One reason is ~hat there are not enough doctom an:~where. There are 15,000 in- ternships offered each year and orhy 10,000 in,terns ~o fill them. The ratio #f graduating physi- ci, ans to our in~rensing popula- tion is becoming steadily worse year by year. Anot, her reason is tha.t we seek physicians' ser- vices five times as much as we dM ten years ago. Kansas is just' nat gettinLg enough doctors :to meet the :,i needs of its people. Thirty-six [ of Kansas' counties h,a~e more than 2,000 people per physician. The national average is 756. We rank 36th in the n~mber af den- tists csmpared to the rest of the n~tivn. The hub of med,~ea,l and he,M,th training in Kansas is the Kan- sas University Medical Center. %t ~rains physicians, nurses, physical therapist, medical tec~nolog, is~ts; provides post- gradu.~te edueation for pr.aetic- ir~g phys~cians across ,the state; does research in the cancer, heart, and other major diseases which attack us all; and is the primary center ~ w~hich Kan- sas dootors refer ,unusual~ or serious diseases "for ,~p~ciia] care. Admissions Came from every county in the sta'te. Ne~vly ,graduated physicians are attracted to those states where the people and the lelgis- lature support medicine. They do not move ,to or stay in states that ~fail to do so. During the last decade, only 25 percent of the total budget of the Medical Center has been provided by tax dollars from the State of Kansas. The rest has had to come ,from the Federal Govern- ment and ,frarn earnings for services rendered. Combined with the ,growing need for more dootors and allied health pro- fessionals, there have been sig- nificant cu*.backs made by the Federal Governmen,t in areas affecting the Medi, cal, Center. No new state funds are avail. ~ble to replace these e~pected cutbacks. The expanded programs that are required to provide more health personnel for Kansas must ~be primarily achieved by the Medical Center and the ad- varmes that have been made can be tra*gica~.,ly delayed or des'troyed in the coming year if the people of Kansas are not willing ,to pick up the responsi- bility ,for their own State's med- ical een~er. The Federal Gov- ernment can no longer be eom~- ed ou to provide the support for ~fun, ds to meet the gr,o~ving shortage of physicians in Kau- sas. It is up to us! A supplemental budget re- quest to the state is the only possible ~ay to fund the pro- grams required to gh, e atten- tion to solvin=g the state's shor~- age o'f doctors. This reques~ wil~ cover She expansion o~ in- ternship and ,residency pro- grams in the State, develop- me~ of a Department of Fam- ily Praotice, and a major en- rollment increase ~th an im- proved new curriculum. Mo~t importantly, i,t is necessary to {utly fund the requested regu- lar hudget o~f the Umversi~y ~edical Center to maintain quality of present cave so that the planned e~pansion can take ,place. W,ithout the st~ppovt a[ the people of I~ansas, there will be no ehance d meeting the problem before it is too L~te. Our state will continue to at- tract and train considerably fewer doctors, nurses, and oth- er medical personnel than ~ve need. All the people of Kamms will lose. We mu~ a~l concern ourselv- es .with this praMem new. What can you do? W, ri,te your local nowsp~per and inform your fellow Kansans ef the urgency of this situation.
