There are not enough health workers to meet the needs of California’s large, diverse, and aging population, and the situation is worsening. The shortages exist across professions and geographies, with sizeable urban and rural populations going underserved. In addition, although the state population is becoming increasingly diverse, current health professionals don’t reflect these demographic shifts. California’s postbaccalaureate programs can help train health professionals who better reflect the demographics of California’s population and who are prepared to meet the needs of all Californians.
