Physician shortages aren't disappearing anytime soon. A study by the Association of American Medical Colleges predicts a shortage of 40,800 to 104,900 physicians by 2030. Subsequently, nurse practitioners and physician assistants will likely rise to be key players in healthcare.
Treating high numbers of patients due to a global pandemic makes it even more important to help physicians for their next role.
PracticeLink is hosting a PracticeLink Virtual Career Fair to give Nashville residents, fellows, practicing physicians and advanced practice providers the opportunity to meet with physician employers from across town and the country.
