Diversity in the health workforce has been demonstrated to increase quality and access to health care in underserved communities. Racially and ethnically diverse health care providers are more likely to practice in underserved communities, and in some cases gender diversity has been associated with better health outcomes for certain populations. However, the best outcomes are observed when the health workforce reflects the community they serve.

The Indiana Health Workforce Diversity Brief Series includes a longitudinal assessment of the Indiana workforce demographics.

The data presented in these reports were captured directly from health professionals at the time of license application or renewal during the span of 1997-2022. In addition, each report contains a review of historical policy and programmatic initiatives related to diversity has been synthesized to provide context.
