MPCA places a strong emphasis on developing and overseeing workforce development initiatives to increase the effectiveness of health professional recruitment and retention programs for Michigan health centers. Our top priority, and the focus of a majority of our efforts, is helping 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.

Besides financial benefits, health centers and their employees create a seamless system of access to high-quality primary and preventive health care for all residents.
