A Message from the HCM Division Chair
March 25, 2023
Dear Members of the Health Care Management Division,
We are approximately 5 months away from the 83rd Academy of Management Annual Meeting in Boston, Massachusetts, USA, and the Executive Committee has been busy planning a phenomenal and engaging program. The 2023 theme “Putting the Worker Front and Center” encourages our community of scholars to address questions impacting the heart of any organization, the workers. In the evolving financial, demographic, and political landscape of the post-pandemic world, the health care environment has been greatly affected by shortages of the workforce, essential worker burnout, and other challenges impacting health care organizations’ ability to care for patients. As a community of health care management scholars, we have the opportunity to provide meaningful responses to these pressing challenges.
Registration and housing for the Annual Meeting in Boston is now open! If you are traveling internationally to attend the Annual Meeting in Boston, don’t wait to apply for your visa. You can learn more on AOM's Visa Information webpage. If you will be a first-time attendee if the AOM’s Annual Meeting, we welcome you!
