East Bay 

Healthcare Executives Group

2nd Thursday of the month |  8:30 – 11:30 am   | Oakland, CA

Upcoming Meeting

Thursday, October 10, 2019

Opening Discussion Topic:

Filling the ‘Family Medicine’ Pipeline

According to a 2018 Doximity report, Family Medicine topped the list of specialties in greatest demand by employers, based on 2017 job postings on the physician’s online network. And, when national physician search firm Merritt Hawkins surveyed physicians in their last year of residency or fellowship, nearly half the primary care and internal medicine residents/fellows reported having received over 100 job solicitations during their training. Sounds like we need more Family Medicine Residency programs!

During our Group Discussion we’ll look to hear your take on how serious the need is for Family Medicine physicians and Nurse Practioners in the Bay Area, and your thoughts on the best practices for filling these “residency slots” and positions.

Fortunately, LifeLong Medical Care’s new Family Medicine Residency program is already accredited, and will be joining LifeLong’s recently expanded Nurse Practioner Residency Program. Telling us more about these and all of LifeLong’s programs – which serve 62,000 patients in 16 sites in Alameda, Contra Costa, and Marin Counties, will be our Featured Member Mike Stacey, MD, LifeLong Medical Care’s new Chief Medical Officer.

RSVP today – and let us know any Other Issues You’d Like to Discuss with us, too.


Mike Stacey, MD, is Chief Medical Officer at LifeLong Medical Care, an innovative, non-profit Federally Qualified Health Center with 16 health centers, mental health services, three Dental Centers, an Adult Day Health Center, four School-Based Health Centers, a Supportive Housing Program, and Urgent Care services. Prior to joining LifeLong in June 2019, Mike was Director of Solano County’s Medical Services Division, for nearly four years, with oversight of the County’s system of 11 FQHC clinics enabling 80,000+ patient encounters a year.
