Health Workforce Development

Our research in this area promotes a diverse and competent health workforce throughout New York State.

We partner with communities and institutions to place health care professionals in medically underserved communities.

Through our research, we:

  • identify geographic regions of unmet health care needs
  • remedy this disparity by recruiting and training professionals to serve in these regions
  • nurture a diverse health workforce by encouraging people from groups underrepresented in health care professions to pursue careers in the field
