Med school enrollment in 2015 will miss goal

Wall Street Journal Health Blog, May 11, 2010
With a physician shortage looming, in 2006 the Association of American Medical Colleges set a goal of boosting first-year med school enrollment by 30% between 2002's baseline and 2015. It is going to miss that target by a few years, the AAMC announced in its 2009 med school enrollment survey. The group's Center for Workforce Studies said enrollment will be up by 23% in 2015, to 20,281, and up a projected 30% in 2018.
