Utah Medical Employment Demand Network

This is a project being developed to regularly assess employer demand for medical professionals across the state of Utah and provide timely information to better support policy making and resource allocation decisions.

For background on this project, please see the nursing demand studies that have been published by the UMEC through the Utah Nursing Workforce Information Center.

This project seeks to produce similar information to work already published, but on a regularly occurring schedule in order to develop a feedback loop and identify trending over time of demand for employment of medical professionals across the state.

This network seeks reporting participants who are employed in facilities that employ medical clinicians of all types in Utah.

Qualified Participants must:

  • be able to access information from their employer about numbers and types of clinicians employed part-time and full-time, annual numbers of separations, turnovers and vacancies, as well as future employment perceptions for their employer.
  • be authorized to provide this information to a state government entity for research purposes on at least an annual basis.
    • Information gathered will only ever be reported by facility type, geography, and profession. Reporting will always mask information where numbers are small enough to be used to identify individual responses.

Please use the form below to register to become a reporting participant for the network. You will be sent an invitation to respond when the reporting frame opens at the beginning of 2019.

Please only register to participate if you meet the qualifications. If there are others within your organization who would be appropriately qualified and assigned to report this information, please have them register as well, or instead.
