As a first step toward cardiology manpower planning, 3,011 questionnaires were sent to a random sample of 24% of the membership of the American College of Cardiology. The response rate was 53%.
The questionnaires covered personal and educational data, geographic aspects of practice, professional activities and sources of professional income. There were differences in these variables according to age. Data were also collected with regard to perceptions of manpower supply and needs. In these categories, regional differences were evident.
