Todd str'ess "ed, however, that there ·was a need for UC Irvine 'to take over the medical -center because California jis not turning out enough . 'doctors each year. , ; DR. 'TODD, of Long '·Beach, 'said California is ·"a debtor state as far as -physician manpower is concerned." / ; -He said California residents are "truly indebted" to other states in the nation who train doctors at their expense and then have those doctors move to California to live and practice. VI feel we can only re- "We should take .over sophisticated institutions such as the Orange County Medical Center which serves as the teaching facility for UC Irvine's college of medicine," he said. "I believe acquisition of the/center at the $5.5 million figure is a bargain." Dr. Todd said he also favors a 200- to 250-bed teaching hospital on the Irvine campus. HE SAID Post's suggestion of moving the medical school to Davis is "totaly unrealistic" because the Davis medical school facilities are "crowded at the present solve this physician manpower problem--and, time in an effort to meet our nurses dentist and allied health manpower problem--by turning out more doctors to meet California's needs," he ';said.. . He said New York turns but 1,850 doctors each year from 12 medical schools while California its own needs and the Sacramento county Medical Center is not large enough to assume such responsibility." "Funding medical education does cost money but it is time to fish or cut bait over this issue," Dr. Todd said. 3 regents oppose any medical school closure · Three members of the Jxmrd of regents of; the University of · " California said Thursday they were opposed to closing any of the system's five medical schools. The members, Chairman William French Smith, Lt. Gov. Mervyn Dymally and Joseph A. Moore J r . , made the assertion .during a discussion in Los Angeles on the proposed closing of the UC Irvine medical school. The system has five medi- ! cal schools -- Irvine, Davis, San Diego, Los Angeles and San Francisco. The regents discussed a proposal from Legislative Analyst A. Alan Post that the Irvine school be closed and the students be moved to UC Davis. Clinton Powell, a special assistant to the pre'si- . dent for health affairs, said the proposal is being considered but that the Irvine closing is by no means the;only alternative/ . . ; mn^Hf^^^^^^^^^-- Henry Block has 17 reasons why you should come to us for income tax help.
