Mission Statement

The core mission of the Center, which was founded in 2002, is to assist health care professionals, educators, the health care industry, public policymakers and other stakeholders in anticipating and effectively responding to the challenges of recruiting, educating, managing, and retaining an evolving health workforce in order to promote the safety, quality, and accessibility of health care in an era of cost containment.

Description

Much of the nation is facing a serious health workforce shortage, a gathering crisis that already is exerting a profound influence on the diversity of health care services throughout Maryland and the region. Access to care, quality of care, and patient safety are dependent upon the availability of an adequate supply of well-educated professionals and trained workers who are the backbone of our health care delivery system. The Center for Health Workforce Development at the University of Maryland, Baltimore is a newly established enterprise and one of a growing number of similar entities in the nation dedicated to analyzing and understanding health workforce issues, dynamics and trends. Our goal is to translate this knowledge into policies and programs to develop the health workforce. As a component of Maryland's only public academic health campus, the Center relies upon the expertise of the schools of nursing, medicine, pharmacy, social work, dentistry, and law.
