Will there be a Doctor in the House? Physician Supply, Demand and Staffing in the Era of COVID-19
Tuesday, July 28 2020
1:00 – 2:00 p.m. CST

Program Description:
The Covid-19 pandemic has profoundly altered the healthcare industry and virtually every other aspect of the economy and of life in the United States. And yet, many of the underlying dynamics fundamental to healthcare remain. One of these is the time-honored fact that healthcare is provided by people, for people. The emergence of Covid-19 has not altered this fact, it has only made it more apparent.

In this presentation, executives with the nation’s leading physician search and consulting firm review the emerging methods that hospitals, medical groups and other healthcare facilities are using to retain and recruit medical staff during the Covid-19 pandemic. The program includes original data from a physician survey conducted by Merritt Hawkins in collaboration with The Physicians Foundation that tracks how physicians are being affected by and are responding to Covid-19.
