Cincinnati Hospital decries cut in training money
Cincinnati Enquirer, February 8, 2008
President Bush's proposed cuts in federal spending to train pediatricians could spell disaster for education programs at Cincinnati Children's Hospital Medical Center and make a national shortage of pediatricians even worse, said hospital officials. Bush's federal budget request would cut all funding for a program that trains 4,700 pediatricians and pediatric specialists a year. If Children's loses the federal money for training physicians, administrators say they will have to choose between training fewer physicians or taking money away from patient care to maintain the program.
