The 2017 New Hampshire Physician Licensure Survey

The Division of Public Health Services is collecting key practice and capacity data from all licensed physicians in the state with the 2017 New Hampshire Physician Survey. The survey is designed to collect general information regarding your current provider status and the locations at which you routinely practice medicine. Only physicians due to renew their New Hampshire medical license in 2017 will have access to the survey.

The data will be a key resource in statewide healthcare access planning and workforce assessment, informing educational and training programs, emergency preparedness, recruitment and retention initiatives including the National Health Service Corps and the NH State Loan Repayment Program, and other functions requiring accurate statewide data on provider capacity.

The electronic survey will be user-friendly and take anywhere from 3 minutes to 15 minutes to complete.

The data collected will be confidential and protected; it will only be used for the aforementioned purposes.

Program Information

The Division of Public Health Services has developed the Health Professions Data Center (HPDC) to collect and store key practice and capacity data from all practicing, licensed providers in NH. Data will be used for healthcare access planning and workforce assessment and will ultimately lead to

  • Federal shortage designations, which brings providers to underserved areas of the state;
  • Strengthened recruitment/retention initiatives including scholarships, loan repayment, and waiver programs;
  • The expansion of existing educational programs and employment training programs; and
  • Stronger emergency preparedness.

The state office of rural health shall also plan and budget for a New Hampshire health professions workforce data center which shall collect such data in the future.

Surveys will be implemented for the following healthcare provider types:

  • Physicians
  • Physician Assistants
  • Advanced Practice Registered Nurses
