Event Description

Following the Dobbs v. Jackson Women’s Health Organization verdict in June 2022, new limitations on the provision of health care have impacted clinicians across the nation, including obstetrician-gynecologists, maternal-fetal medicine specialists, family physicians, emergency medicine specialists, oncologists, and more. In this webinar, practicing physicians* will discuss effects on their well-being and professional futures. The event will conclude with an analysis of national-level implications and strategies to maintain the physician pipeline.

* Impacts of the Dobbs decision affect clinicians across the care team, including nurses, nurse practitioners, physicians, physician assistants, and others. This webinar is part of a larger initiative that will consider comprehensive workforce impacts. If you are a clinician interested in sharing your perspective, please email namedicine@nas.edu.
