Med school’s Dean Pamela B. Davis addresses doctor shortage

The School of Medicine has increased its class size by nearly 20 percent over the last six years but is at current capacity, said Dean Pamela B. Davis. The school’s collaborative education program, though, will “help us do a better job with cost-effective, high-quality medical care.”
