Arguably, in every state the issue of health care and other health related concerns takes the center stage. The article is actually comprehensive in analyzing the impacts of the changes that health care policies and cutting of costs on residency programs. Based on the article I believe some of the states are justified in making adjustments. One of the critical aspects in the article is the absence of a policy that balances the issue of finances, training of medical practitioners, as well as expansion of medical school. There should be equilibrium in all the aspects. It is worth noting that the effects of economic imbalance in various states does not only affect institutions but also affect individuals seeking medical care. The inequalities that exist in various states in terms of wealth and resource allocation call for serious scrutiny on the move to cut costs.
The future of physicians’ population and the education of physicians is actually at risk. This is because the education and employment of physicians is dependent on other factors. The imbalance in the employment of physicians and the expansion of medical schools is a big issue. From the article it is evident that the enrollment in medical school went up regardless of the budget falls, this means that there will be an increase in the number of graduates. Perhaps, this should be balanced by the aspect of employing many physicians in the hospitals. Therefore, there is a possibility that most of the graduates will not have a position to work if hospitals are not expanded. If the costs are cut in the education of physicians, and moved to uninsured residency then there will be no physicians to work. In general, perspective the future of physicians’ population and education is at risk due to imbalance in the distribution of resources.
One of the best move in addressing the issue as a leader is to ensure that there is a mechanism that counter checks the education of physician, the need of hospitals, and the population of the physicians. In this case, there will be a balance on the issue. Cutting costs in one unit and increasing on the order is not the solution since the demand and supply of physicians and patients will not balance.
These will efficient access of health care. This is because at one point there will be no waste of limited resources in funding one sector that will cause imbalance in the forces of demand and supply. The physicians trained will be utilized in service delivery, and the expansion will be reasonable enough to meet the demands of the people.
