CHA submitted a response to a Senate HELP committee request for information (RFI) that highlights the unique nature of pediatric workforce shortages. It emphasizes that meaningful policy solutions must strengthen the pediatric workforce pipeline and address recruitment and retention across the spectrum of both licensed and non-licensed pediatric providers and specialists. Solutions include reauthorizing the Children's Hospitals Graduate Medical Education program, expanding existing and developing new federal programs to support the pediatric clinician and allied health pipeline and investing in the mental health workforce.
