|Recruitment & Retention|
The Michigan Primary Care Association (MPCA) places a strong emphasis on developing and overseeing workforce development initiatives to increase the effectiveness of health professional recruitment and retention programs for the Association and Michigan Health Centers. Our top priority, and the focus of a majority of our efforts, is assisting Health Centers in recruiting and retaining highly qualified health care professionals to serve the needs of the medically vulnerable population in Michigan. Our goal is to strengthen the existing network of Health Centers by providing better access to research and best practices surrounding workforce development, and to support policies that strengthen the primary care workforce in the future.
The MPCA understands that recruitment and retention is critical for Health Centers. The resources in our Recruitment and Retention Toolkit are intended to be a guide, and can be used in training your Health Center staff to be more prepared and involved in the recruitment and retention process.
