Arizona Workforce Trend Analysis 2002-2006

The Arizona Workforce Trend Analysis 2002-2006, distributed in April 2011, was supported by Arizona AHEC and prepared by the Arizona Rural Health Office, Mel and Enid Zuckerman College of Public Health at the University of Arizona.

The health professionals examined were allopathic and osteopathic physicians (primary care physicians, specialists, obstetrics-gynecologists, and psychiatrists), physician assistants, registered nurses, nurse practitioners, certified nurse midwives, nurse anesthetists, licensed practical nurses, certified nurse assistants, dentists (generalists and specialists), pharmacists, pharmacy technicians, and emergency medical technicians.
