  4. 4. • Needs - National – Needs will exceed capacity to produce new doctors at today’s output – Mismatches in primary care vs. specialist distribution – Physician population is changing • Specialty selection • Work hours • Retirement – Access challenges (geographic and financial) – Population increases and changes influence health care needs • New schools, expanding class size – but… • Capped residency programs CMS (BBA 1997)
  5. 5. MD and DO First Year Enrollment 2002-2014
  6. 6. • Needs – Indiana – Indiana population projections – Over age 65 doubles from 2000 to 2030 (2x visits) – More need with chronic diseases, obesity – Physicians are aging, retiring too • earlier retirement now than in past • working fewer hours – 55.9 hr/wk (1976) vs. 50.2 hr/wk (2006) [JD 44.9, RN 37.3] – more females – life style more important – Indiana short 5,000 physicians for population, state-wide
  7. 7. • Needs – Indiana – By 2020 the state needs 2,000 more primary care physicians • needs met in only 19% urban, 2% rural counties – 54% Indiana counties = medically underserved (57 of 92) –38% mental health provider shortage –30% primary health care shortage

  11. 11. • Osteopathic Medicine – DO (Doctor of Osteopathic Medicine) fully trained, conventional physicians – Licensed for all facets medical practice – Differences • Emphasis on – Whole patient philosophy (illness treatment in context of person, family and community) – Wellness and Prevention – Mind-body-spirit approach • Additional training in osteopathic manipulation – Structure intimately related to function – Musculoskeletal system more than just motion and support (soft tissues, neural, lymphatics, circulation)
  12. 12. • Osteopathic Medicine – Very fast growing • In 2010, DO students are 1 in 5 of all medical students • Projected 1 in 4 by 2015 – About 30 schools nationwide – Easier to start DO school with less emphasis on academic medical center model – No ownership of hospitals – Use community clinical training resources

  16. 16. • MU-COM Affects on Indiana – Economic development building project in Indianapolis • $53.5 million construction – To compare, Final 4 in 2006 = $40 million – 318 direct jobs – 185 indirect jobs • Hiring faculty, staff (about 60 full and part time) • 600 students when all 4 years are full in 2015 • Expansion of Marian University – If 50% of DO graduates stay in IN, then 75 new physicians per year starting in 2017
