"J.  The Eastern Virginia Medical School shall prepare, by October 1, 1999, a budget proposal for the Governor's consideration in the Governor's 2000-2002 biennial budget proposal that would provide the resources and teaching faculty necessary to provide effective instruction in geriatric medical care to undergraduate and graduate medical students.  The School shall include in the proposal a report on the number of hours such medical students currently are required to spend in geriatric care instruction and the current number of faculty and the total resources currently dedicated to geriatric care instruction.  The School shall also include in the proposal a comparison of revenues from geriatric care clinical practice and the costs of the geriatric program."

(This amendment calls for a review of the adequacy of physicians and staff available to provide geriatric care.)
