A New Guide Helps You “Grow Your Own”

The Growing Provider Shortage: Building the Case for Developing an HP-ET Program is a new resource from the Association of Clinicians for the Underserved to help you “grow your own” workforce. Understanding what roles are currently in demand, and which are likely to increase in demand soon, is critical to assessing what type of Health Professions Education and Training (HP-ET) or other recruitment programs can most benefit a health center. This newly produced ACU STAR² Center document is designed to highlight projected workforce needs based on National Health Service Corps vacancy data and provides an overview of options available to develop or sustain HP-ET programs to meet these needs.
