Stephen Davies undertook this study while pursuing a Harkness Fellowship at the Institute for Health Policy at Massachusetts General Hospital within the Partners HealthCare System between September 2001 and July 2002.
His report probes a key area of health policy: the relationship between service provision and academic teaching and training of doctors in two differently funded and managed health care systems. A report of crucial relevance to the UK at a time when supply of qualified doctors remains a rate-limiting factor on the achievement of the ambitious targets set out in the NHS Plan.
