For all that changed since 2020 across healthcare, one area near the top of health system and medical group leaders’ minds has not been disrupted for the better: physician retention.
Not a week goes by without major headlines heralding the concerning forecast of physician shortages across the United States in most specialties, yet there remains a disconnect between what healthcare leaders hope to do to avoid this calamity and what gets done: Almost eight in 10 (77%) medical groups report they do not have a formal program or strategy for physician retention, per a May 9, 2023, MGMA Stat poll.

To better understand how to confidently make progress on these crucial issues, LocumTenens.com partnered with Medical Group Management Association (MGMA) for a new study, The Future of Work: Clinician Engagement and Technological Advancement, in the summer of 2023.
