Amid constant debate over health delivery system reforms, insufficient attention has been given to the needs of the future US health care workforce in light of rapid changes. The November 2013 thematic issue of Health Affairs,”Redesigning The Health Care Workforce,” takes on the issue of how to create the optimal health care workforce for the 21st century.
Please join Health Affairs Founding Editor John Iglehart on Thursday, November 14, at the W Hotel in Washington, DC, for a briefing that features authors from the issue. In addition, Health Affairs is pleased to collaborate with Academic Medicine, the journal of the Association of American Medical Colleges, and its Editor-in-Chief David Sklar to feature several authors from Academic Medicine’s forthcoming thematic issue on training the future health care workforce.
The program will include a keynote address by Princeton Professor Uwe Reinhardt, and remarks by Representatives Allyson Schwartz (D-PA), and Aaron Schock (R-IL).
