The Los Angeles County Department of Health Services (DHS) is experiencing a shortage of primary care physicians. To counter this deficiency, FUSE executive fellow Nancy Villasenor developed a comprehensive recruitment, hiring, onboarding, and marketing plan that DHS can use to attract a larger pool of primary care physicians committed to public healthcare.

County meet critical staffing needs.
