Center for the Future of the Health Professions October 2020 letter from the directorPosted: September 30, 2020
Starting this month, The Center for the Future of the Health Professions will be posting a monthly op-ed or column. These columns will represent strong, informed, and focused opinions on issues that affect the future of the health professions. As mentioned in the past, the Center was developed to provide state, local, and national policymakers and health system stakeholders with accurate, reliable, and comprehensive data and research about the healthcare workforce, so they can effectively plan for a sustainable future and make the best use of available resources.
This month features two ATSU leaders; Dr. Leonard Goldstein, assistant vice president for clinical education development in academic affairs, and Kimberly DeVore, director of clinical education in the department of physician assistant studies. They share their opinions about the clinical barriers facing us in the time of COVID-19 pandemic and how A.T. Still University has approached this issue. We encourage readers to share their thoughts after reading this important piece.
