The paper presents some mathematical concepts of modeling a health manpower educational system. The importance of manpower resources, i.e., doctors, nurses, and other supporting staff, in the health services delivery process is widely recognized. Therefore, the research on resource supply models analyzing health manpower education was undertaken.

First, the general structure of the health manpower educational system (HMES) was presented. Next the adapted methodology of modeling was described, followed by mare detailed presentations of: secondary medical school subsystems; medical academy subsystems; and postgraduate courses.

Numerical examples from Poland of the application of proposed simulation techniques to medical academies were given. In addition, the forecasts of the number of medical doctors with Ph.D. degrees were presented.

Then the utilization of resources in the education process was briefly described. The paper focused its attention on models for simulation purposes, but an optimization approach to the modeling of an educational system was also presented, proceeding naturally from simulation models.
