Completed surveys were received from 210 (79%) program directors.
One hundred twenty-six (63%) program directors responded that obstetrician-gynecologists should be primary care physicians for women, and 120 (60%) believed that the role of subspecialists will be reduced in the near future.
In 1996,177 (94%) programs had managed care contracts ; many (57%) had>20 contracts.
All programs participate with other specialties to teach primary care to their residents.
One hundred twelve (59%) programs have had a decrease in patient volume, prompting 90 (45%) programs to increase their number of teaching sites. (...)
