Resource Title: Encore Physicians Help Community Health Clinics Deliver Care, while Mentoring Younger Colleagues

Publication Title: Encore

Publish Date: July 7, 2021

In 2019, Encore.org launched the Encore Physicians program to match retired doctors who want to continue practicing medicine part-time and mentor younger colleagues with health centers that need additional support.

To date, 15 Encore Physicians have been matched with six centers in five Bay Area counties — with overwhelmingly positive results. The Encore physicians have found the work fulfilling and community health centers have welcomed the care provided by these experienced clinicians.

We recently spoke with several retired physicians and medical directors at health centers that have participated in the program. Learn more about their experience — in their own words — below.
