SHREVEPORT TIMES 9/27/74 Grulee Sees Problem In Medical Aid Bill By Elaine King Of The Times Staff Or Clifford G Grulee. dean of the Louisiana State University School of Medicine in Shreveport, said yesterday he is concerned about possible impact of pending federal legislation on the school The legislation deals with the provisions under which federal subsidies would be made to medical schools on a per student basis It's going to be a problem for the medical school, the dean said But he said he does not think it will be insurmountable, with proper planning, for Shreveport's Medical School. The measure, which passed in the Senate Tuesday, provides new federal funds for t r a i n i n g health care professionals It is designed to replace the health manpower act that expired earlier this year. Under the expired bill medical schools received a federal subsidy for each student The measure, now before the House, would make any subsidies subject to federal guidelines The bill would provide federal grants to medical schools that reserve 25 per cent of its total enrollment slots for students who agree to serve after graduation in medically under staffed areas. In return for their pledges of service after graduation, the students would receive federal funds for their education, the bill provides A student could not participate in the program for less than two years The medically underserved areas include inner city and rural sections Medical schools in the past have received federal subsidies on a per student basis, Dean Grulee said, "without any strings attached." Although the legislation will mean financial loss to many medical schools, the medical school here is "perhaps more fortunate than many larger, older institutions," Dr. Grulee said. The amount of federal funds that the Shreveport medical school, has received, or could receive, is not very great because the school is still small, he explained. This year's subsidy from the federal government totalled $300,000, a small percentage of the budget, he said. That will make any n e c e s s a r y financial adjustments easier, he said. In some of the larger medical schools, for example, the money is used in the budget for salaries or other recurring expenses, he noted. The pending legislation, which modifies a more far - reaching measure originally presented, was a topic among medical school leaders at a meeting last week in Washington of the Association of American Medical Schools, he said.
