Pre-pandemic there were concerns about the resilience and sustainability of the Healthcare Education workforce derived from an ageing demographic and the challenges of recruiting from practice into an academic environment where teaching and research experience are often pre-requisites. The pandemic has potentially further damaged this fragile state with more than half of all academics citing emotional burnout as a driver for their intent to leave the sector. Similar statistics exist for those in clinical practice. This presentation will reflect on survey data gained from Healthcare academics about their work-related pandemic experiences and consider how this can inform future recruitment practices.
