Coming Soon: CPCA 2020 Compensation and Benefits Survey Results

THANK YOU to the roughly 130 health centers that completed CPCA’s 2020 Compensation & Benefits Survey! The Compensation & Benefits Survey is conducted annually online to collect detailed information on compensation structures for executive, clinical, and administrative positions for California’s primary care community health centers (CHC). Participating health centers will receive a free copy of the statewide report, an individualized report that compares their compensation against similarly sized clinics, and a copy of the aggregated compensation data for regional and industry benchmarking. 

All three reports will be disseminated to participating clinics during CPCA’s 2020 Salary Survey results webinar, scheduled for Monday, November 9. Copies of the statewide report can also be purchased on CPCA’s Store.

Developing a Robust Community Health Center Workforce

CPCA is committed to building a robust healthcare workforce that is reflective of California’s diverse communities. The report, California’s Primary Care Workforce: Forecasted Supply, Demand, and Pipeline of Trainees, 2016-2030 shows that by 2030 California is projected to demand between 39,331 and 44,188 primary care clinician FTEs, an increase of 12% to 17% above the current demand. We need new and non-traditional partnerships and collaboration that push innovative solutions far beyond the simple math of adding providers. Read on for more information and resources related to CPCA’s recruitment, retention and primary care workforce training efforts.

CHC Residency Road Map

Workforce Resources

This workforce resource packet is intended be a small warehouse of workforce-related resources that support recruitment, retention, training, and care transformation efforts in community health centers. You can expect to find a variety of toolkits, reports, research publications and funding opportunities. This packet is not a complete inventory of all health workforce related materials available – it is an initial survey of workforce resources that we hope will be of value to our community health centers and allied partners.
