Health professionals are facing a number of critical issues including the changing nature of the work environment, decreased interest in careers in the health professions, applicant pools, aging faculty, professional relationships, and diversity. There is overwhelming consensus that the health care workforce is in a crisis. The Association of Academic Health Centers has organized a conference for the 8th Congress of Health Professions Educators. The theme of this conference is Solving the Workforce Crises: Lessons from Clinical Practice and the Corporate World. The purpose of this project is to let educators and administrators alike know that some people and institutions have found ways to resolve workforce crises, and use the examples as models for solving the current health care crisis. The conference will be considered successful if the published proceedings not only generate viable solutions, but are also widely disseminated to academic health centers, policy makers, leaders of nonprofit educational and health organizations, and foundation CEOs.
