This report compares the demand for qualified healthcare workers in Maryland and the supply provided by Maryland higher education institutions. It identifies: (1) Maryland?s top 25 demand healthcare occupations, and (2) any gaps between the supply and demand for these 25 healthcare occupations. Additional information on each healthcare occupation is provided to assist in developing strategies to bridge gaps between supply and demand. Strategies to close these gaps need to be tailored to specific occupations; there is not necessarily one strategy that fits all. A supply/demand analysis of Maryland's top 25 demand healthcare occupations is provided, along with additional data on specific healthcare occupations. A comparison is made between the projected demand for qualified healthcare workers in Maryland and the supply provided by Maryland higher education institutions.
