American College of Physicians says proposed cuts will weaken American leadership in
Medical Research and Education, and Science
Washington (March 16, 2017) —The American College of Physicians (ACP) today said it is deeply concerned about the fiscal year 2018 budget outline or “skinny” budget released this morning by the Trump administration because it proposes deep cuts to medical and health services research, primary care training programs, and many other essential health-care programs and research. “The United States has long been recognized as a world leader in medical research and education,” said Nitin S. Damle, MD, MS, MACP, ACP’s president. “This budget, were it to be adopted by Congress, would greatly weaken critical programs that are essential to maintaining our leadership in biomedical and health-services research, public-health programs, and medical education.”
Specifically, ACP is concerned by noted proposed reductions in funding and changes in policy:
ACP is also concerned about deep cuts to funding for climate change. Without support for the research on climate change conducted by federal agencies – including NASA, National Oceanic and Atmospheric Administration (NORA), the EPA, the State Department and the Department of Energy – the warming of the planet will continue, bringing with it devastating consequences to human health.
While ACP is encouraged by an increase of $500 million for expanding prevention efforts for opioid substance use disorder, more details are needed to evaluate this expansion fully, particularly since other budget cuts and policies proposed by the administration could undermine this goal.
“ACP is keenly aware of the fiscal pressures facing the Trump administration and Congress at this time, but it strongly believes the U.S. must invest robustly in biomedical and health services research, workforce and delivery system initiatives that support primary care and public health, including programs that have a proven track record of effectiveness but also those that demonstrate the kind of innovation required in any high-performing health-care system,” Dr. Damle concluded. “Unfortunately, this budget proposal fails to make those investments and would make America less great by undermining our commitment to science, medical and health services research, medical education, and research on climate change.”
The American College of Physicians is the largest medical specialty organization in the United States. ACP members include 148,000 internal medicine physicians (internists), related subspecialists, and medical students. Internal medicine physicians are specialists who apply scientific knowledge and clinical expertise to the diagnosis, treatment, and compassionate care of adults across the spectrum from health to complex illness.
