Invest in the next generation of our health care workforce

To address coming workforce shortages, O’Malley will expand the National Health Service Corps and Area Health Education Centers to better support access and culturally competent care in underserved areas. O’Malley will also expand opportunities for allied health professionals and other key health care workers to serve their communities. He will work with states to support opportunities for nurse practitioners and physician assistants to serve more patients. And he will develop a nationwide effort to train thousands of new community health workers to serve as health coaches and patient navigators, expanding funding for health care career track programming at community colleges.
