PHYSICIANS FOUNDATION TO REACH OUT TO ALL U.S. PHYSICIANS
The Physicians Foundation board has decided to conduct an unprecedented survey of all 630,000 practicing physicians in the United States. The results will tell the story of what is currently happening to the profession and be used as a resource for the industry and policymakers. The foundation also will conduct a broad survey of American patients and a study of the next generation of U.S. physicians. I serve as president of the foundation, which is taking these steps and many others to continue our drive to prepare physicians for changing practice conditions. With the growing employment of physicians, for example, I am excited about our decision to explore developing a handbook on the rights of hospital medical staff.
