    2023 Health Workforce Research Conference

    May 3-5, 2023

    Join us for the premier gathering of researchers, educators, and policymakers to discuss emerging issues related to the nation’s health workforce. The 2023 AAMC Health Workforce Research Conference will take place Wednesday, May 3 – Friday, May 5, 2023. This year's conference theme is: The Next Normal: How Do We Make It Better for the Health Workforce?

    While the meeting is returning to an in-person format, we do plan to offer limited virtual attendance options. This will give attendees the flexibility to choose how they participate. We’re still developing the details of our first-ever mixed-mode conference. We want it to be as successful and inclusive as possible.

    Annual Address on the State of the Physician Workforce

    AAMC’s Annual Meeting, Learn Serve Lead, features an address from AAMC’s Director of Workforce Studies, Michael Dill. The Annual Address on the State of the Physician Workforce provides an overview of the latest physician workforce projections and the multiple factors that influenced workforce needs, including undergraduate and graduate medical education (UME and GME) trends, the workforce implications of emerging trends, such as work hours and retirement, and the growth in telehealth use. Mr. Dill includes the most current information and the most recent data on the physician workforce, including trainees, practitioners, and faculty as appropriate. He also presents new data and trends in trainee and workforce diversity, and current data and research on access to care, especially for vulnerable populations. The session also features the newest data from AAMC's Consumer Survey of Health Care Access and AAMC’s National Sample Survey of Physicians.
