There is a renewed emphasis being placed on the need for broader and more accessible mental health services in the U.S., and a key challenge arises when considering the current state of supply and demand in the field of psychiatry.
A newly updated white paper from Merritt Hawkins, “The Silent Shortage: An Examination of Supply, Demand and Recruiting Trends in Psychiatry,” explores this topic. It offers an overview of the market in psychiatry and may be useful if you follow trends in mental health delivery.
As the white paper indicates, Merritt Hawkins now conducts more search assignments for psychiatrists than for any other type of physician, other than family doctors.
If you have questions about the white paper, or if you would like a copy, please contact Senior Marketing Consultant Ben Adams at (469) 524-1698 or Ben.Adams@MerrittHawkins.com. (Tim Pfarr)
