The Georgia Board for Physician Workforce co-sponsors “Practice Opportunity Fairs” each year in conjunction with graduate medical education programs to link resident physicians with employment opportunities around the state. Previous hosting physician residency programs have included the Medical College of Georgia in Augusta, Navicent Health in Macon and Memorial Health University Medical Center in Savannah.
“We hope these fairs provide these up-and-coming practitioners the opportunity to connect with hospitals scattered throughout the state,” said Dr. Mark Hanly, chairperson of the GBPW. “Since several of the hospitals participating are from rural areas, these fairs align with the board’s mission to support medical education programs that encourage doctors to practice in medically underserved communities.”
Invited participants are resident physicians of Georgia-based GME programs and any hospital or health system recruiting for practice opportunities in Georgia. Potential exhibitors interested in showcasing their facility to the resident physicians at any of the fairs should contact the GBPW. Resident physicians wanting to attend should contact the residency program coordinator of the graduate medical education program hosting the fair.
