LANSING - The Michigan Department of Community Health will create a new health care workforce center to coordinate state efforts that address physician workforce challenges Michigan will face in the next decade.
The Michigan Healthcare Workforce Center - to be housed in the Michigan Department of Community Health Bureau of Health Professions - will include an interactive Web site with specific data and reports generated by Michigan departments and a second Web site focusing on careers in health care.
The state's efforts come in response to a recent study conducted by MDCH that concluded Michigan will soon face shortages in its physician workforce.
A copy of the physician workforce survey can be found at www.michigan.gov/mdch.

Business owners struggling to find a skilled workforce may want to explore the apprenticeship program forged by Mohave Community College and an area manufacturer.
The lack of available machinists and millwrights led to an agreement between Mohave Community College and Laron Inc., of Kingman to establish an on-site training program for company employees while also providing them with college credits.
Ten months ago, John Hansen, general manager at Laron Inc., tried to hire machinists and millwrights to meet the demands of a burgeoning industrial boom in Mohave County.
"I realized quickly we were not going to find qualified applicants locally," Hansen said.
Hansen advertised in Las Vegas and Phoenix to attract people to jobs that pay up to $27 per hour. Unable to find local qualified applicants or to entice outside job seekers, Laron President Glenn Thoroughman and Hansen decided to take a different approach.
