Area(s) of Interest: Physician Workforce
Building and supporting California graduate medical education (GME) programs is a critical workforce development strategy to address current and future shortages in medically underserved areas and specialties.
As physician workforce development and health care executive leaders consider starting a program, they need to address several critical components of GME strategic and business planning processes. They need to:
- Understand the GME value proposition and its implication for key cultural, strategic, operational and financial aspects of their organization
- Determine the feasibility of a GME program for their organization
- Understand the accreditation requirements needed to establish and implement a GME program
To that end, Physicians for a Healthy California (PHC)’s GME Startup Solutions and ECG Management Consultants have launched a free, two-part webinar series to empower GME champions to grow and diversify California’s physician workforce pipeline.
