C. : key determinants of supply and distribution, 1991-96 : a report to the post-graduate medical education advisory committee Kazanjian, Arminée, 1947-; Reid, Robert J.; Apland, Lars E.; Wood, Laura Christine, 1955-; Pagliccia, Nino; Wood, Laura Christine, 1955-
At the request of the Post Graduate Medical Education (PGME) Advisory Committee of British Columbia, this project was undertaken to describe the supply and distribution of physicians in British Columbia, including that of general practitioners/family physicians and specialists certified by the Royal College of Physicians and Surgeons of Canada (RCPSC). To meet this objective, the study had four specific aims: (1) to describe the supply and distribution of physicians in B.C. in 1991/92 and 1996/97 by region, sex, age, specialty and place of medical education; (2) to examine differences in the ‘scope of practice’ among B.C. physicians in relation to their specialty, geographic location, demographics, practice intensity, and place of medical education; (3) to examine the stability of the physician workforce in B.C. between 1991/92 and 1996/97 by sociodemographics, specialty and place of medical education; and (a) to examine how physicians' intensity of practice relates to the professional life cycle. The study did not examine issues relating to the appropriateness of the physician supply in relation to population health needs or demand for care.
