The Georgia Board for Health Care Workforce (GBHCW) is a state agency responsible for advising the Governor and the General Assembly on healthcare workforce and medical education policy and issues. The GBHCW works to identify the supply and distribution of healthcare workforce needs in Georgia communities and to meet those needs through the support and development of medical education programs and data. The Board’s responsibilities include monitoring and forecasting the supply and distribution of healthcare professionals in Georgia; assuring an adequate supply, specialty mix, and geographic distribution of healthcare professionals to meet the healthcare needs of Georgia; coordinating various healthcare professionals’ planning with state funding for medical education; and developing and supporting medical education programs required to meet healthcare workforce needs. The GBHCW has collected workforce data on physicians, physician assistants, nurses, dentists, and dental hygienists. The GBHCW also approves and allocates state appropriations for undergraduate and graduate medical education programs in the state and awards service cancelable loans for physicians, physician assistants, dentists, advanced practice registered nurses, nurse faculty, and behavioral health professionals practicing in rural counties of Georgia. Annually, the GBHCW administers a medical school graduate survey to graduates of all five medical schools in the state, as well as a GME exit survey to all graduates of Georgia’s graduate medical education programs.
