The Association of American Medical Colleges, acknowledging concerns about a future physician shortage for the first time in years, has created a new program to help track workforce trends, the Washington-based organization announced today. The AAMC's Center for Workforce Studies will be headed by Edward Salsberg, a nationally recognized expert on physician-supply issues who founded the Center for Health Workforce Studies at SUNY-Albany seven years ago. The new center will be established in April 2004, when Salsberg will join the association. As director of the new center, Salsberg will lead efforts to assess the supply, demand, use and distribution of physicians in the U.S., helping the organization chart its future policies. -- by Michael Romano
