Healthcare currently consists of five generations of providers. Each generation brings a different set of skills as well as a different set of experiences to the table. In order to appreciate the differences, as well as the similarities, providers must embrace each generation and the variety of skills brought to the table. This presentation will discuss the generations, their history, their experiences, their strengths and their opportunities. Strategies for embracing providers across generations will be provided.
