Right Now

Senators Coburn, Enzi and Burr today sent letters to the Departments of Labor, Education, Veterans Affairs, and Defense asking for comprehensive data on the metrics and strategies used to oversee and guide and the agencies’ health care workforce training programs.  In April 2014, the senators also sent a letter to HHS asking for similar information.   

A 2013 GAO report found the federal government administers 91 different health care workforce programs, with total obligations of $14.2 billion in FY2012.
