Fall graduations are now behind us, and that means a cadre of newly minted healthcare professionals are now entering the workforce. With that in mind, we wanted to share some information from the Virginia Department of Health‘s Office of Health Equity on health workforce incentive programs.
Healthcare providers face many challenges in the field, but one of the most difficult remains how to communicate a difficult diagnosis to a patient. We were privileged to have Dr. Thomas Bishop lead us through a session at Head for the Hills 2016 on approaches providers can take to communicate bad news more effectively. For those of you who were not able to join us at the conference this year, Dr. Bishop’s presentation can be found below.
Our speakers presented on a variety of topics at Head for the Hills 2016, but perhaps one of our most timely sessions was offered by Dr. Lorenzo Pence. No matter where you fall on the political spectrum, we can probably all agree that big changes will be coming to the realm of healthcare in 2017 and beyond.
Often considered the faces of the healthcare industry, there is no denying the pressure for excellence placed on current and future providers of healthcare services. In the attached presentation, you will find an overview of the policies influencing graduate medical education today, as well some exciting insights on new programs meant to help future professionals become leaders in the field, an increasingly important position in these times of change.
