Health care workforce shortage topic of CU forum

Cameron's University's Bill W. Burgess, Jr. Business Research Center and the Center for Emerging Technology and Entrepreneurial Studies (CETES) will present "Shortage of Medical Practitioners in the State of Oklahoma," a business forum on Wednesday, April 27. Craig Jones, president of the Oklahoma Hospital Association, will deliver the keynote address. The event takes place at 10 a.m. in the Buddy Green Room of the McMahon Centennial Complex. Refreshments will be served. Parking is available on University Drive across from the facility.

 Following the keynote address, Jones will be joined for a panel discussion by Steve Hyde, chief executive officer of Southwestern Medical Center, Lawton; Dr. Joe Langley, director of the Southwest Area Health Education Center;  Dr. Heidi Malling, a family practitioner in Lawton;  and Dr. Jeremy Phelps, a neurosurgeon in Enid.

 Despite unparalleled advances in medical technology, billions of dollars expended in developing enhanced healthcare facilities, and the evolution of new delivery models, the healthcare industry is plagued by the acute shortage of medical practitioners. In rural Oklahoma, there is a continuing shortage of both physicians and nurses. The forum will examine Oklahoma's healthcare workforce shortage from numerous perspectives.

 

For more information, contact Dr. Syed Ahmed at 580-581-2430 or 580-581-5438.
