Mullan Institute Health Workforce Diversity Tracker
The Mullan Institute is committed to conducting research and policy analysis to promote greater equity in health care and society. The Diversity Tracker will monitor progress (or lack thereof) toward the goal of greater racial and ethnic parity in the health workforce through four major components:
The collection and analysis of data on the diversity of the health workforce with a focus on the educational pipeline
Dissemination of the data and findings, including: “report cards” for states, professions, and institutions; publications; and interactive website
Support for research on the impact of interventions/strategies to increase diversity
Advocacy through targeted distribution of the findings and convening of organizations and groups supportive of the goal of more racial and ethnic parity in the health workforce
The Diversity Tracker will cover the full range of health occupations, from front-line workers to physicians.
