    Abstract

    The Royal Commission on Medical Education recommends that the ratio of doctors to population should undergo an exponential expansion after 1975. It is suggested that the Commission does not appear to have fully recognized the implications of this proposal, nor to have considered other possible modes of expansion, which would result in substantially different estimates of future needs.
