Building the Health Workforce in California: Strategic Plan

Investigator: Janet Coffman, MA, MPP, PhD
Sponsor: Public Health Institute

Location(s): United States


The goal of this collaboration is to support the development of a strategic plan for building the health workforce to meet California’s future needs in anticipation of new state leadership in 2019. This Plan will promote a set of practical short, medium, and longer-term solutions that could be adopted and implemented by the state, educational institutions, employers, and other stakeholders to address current and future gaps in the health workforce. Another key goal is to establish a forum, structure, and process for effective plan implementation, with ongoing adjustment as needs change and with results reporting and accountability.
