Abstract:

Medical planning to provide physicians for mobilization is deficient in that there is an absolute shortage of physicians in the military, particulary in the most needed surgical and related specialties. A proposal has been made to provide for a new program of Reserve Component physician participation that allows for minimum but structured commitment of time, coupled with reasonable financial incentives, and the provision for increased participation in Reserve Component activities as an individual physician accrues more expendable time. It is felt that such a program would be a highly valuable and effective recruiting tool to fill vacancies of physician specialists in both USAR and NG TOE and TDA Medical Units. In so doing, this program should substantially improve this countrys medical preparedness for mobilization and provide an additional measure of deterrent strength to support the Total Force.
