Physician Retraining & Reentry (PRR) Collaborates With National Healthcare Recruiter UHCSolutions to Identify Primary Care Positions for its Graduates
Date:1/10/2017

In an effort to help tackle the growing shortage of primary care physicians across the country, Physician Retraining & Reentry (PRR) announced today a collaboration with healthcare recruiting firm UHCSolutions. By guiding its graduates to a wide variety of positions in primary care that have been identified by the expert recruiters at UHCSolutions, PRR is able to significantly help simplify the post-graduate job search. The collaboration comes at a time when PRR is aiming to provide additional career resources for those who wish to practice adult out-patient primary care upon completion of its program.

“At PRR, we offer medically licensed physicians – many with decades of experience who have taken time off from practice or retired early – with the latest medical knowledge and educational methodologies needed to comfortably and competently practice adult out-patient primary care,” said Leonard W. Glass, MD, president and founder of PRR. “Our relationship with UHCSolutions will help us expedite the job search process for the expert physicians who complete our program.”

By the Numbers: The Growing PCP Shortage 

  • There will be shortfall of between 12,500 and 31,100 primary care physicians anticipated by 2025. (Source: The Complexities of Physician Supply and Demand: Projections from 2013 to 2025)
  • Due to the fact physician training can take up to a decade, a physician shortage in 2025 is a problem that needs to be addressed in 2015 (Source: AAMC – Physician Supply & Demand Through 2025: Key Findings)
  • There are 91 active primary care physicians per 100,000 people in the U.S. More PCPs are needed if Americans are going to get the right care, in the right place and at the right time. (Source: AAMC)

“Helping to build workforce capacity for community healthcare organizations is our mission,” said Tim Mulvaney, president, CEO and director of recruitment at UHCSolutions. “We are unique in that our firm works exclusively with community health centers across the nation recruiting leadership, physicians and a variety of healthcare professionals. We’re proud to be teaming up with PRR to help its expert graduate physicians find primary care positions at FQHCs across the country.”

PRR consists of 15 online modules that cover a wide range of critical subject matter from cardiology to dermatology, medical records and more. Participants are able to work through the program at their own pace, giving them ample time to master each course before taking a final examination, and a one-day, in-person practicum.

Upon completion, graduates receive 180 AMA PRA Category 1™ credits from the UC San Diego School of Medicine. The program then offers one free day of physician shadowing at a nominal fee for those who wish to get more experience before returning to clinical practice. Additional days of shadowing are available to all graduates at a nominal fee should they wish to have additional clinic experience before returning to work.
