The article discusses the statement by Nick Busing, president of the Association of Facilities of Medicine of Canada, that increasing the number of medical school spots is useless without developing a national health human resources plan. Busing notes the lack of the federal leadership and support that is needed to develop a central planning mechanism. He adds that developing a national plan is a hard sell with the government.
