EMHS program provides new opportunity for employees

Adult-learners.jpgAt EMHS, we have big plans for the future. We are building an enterprisewide electronic health records system, organizing more than one thousand employed providers into a single medical group, and continuing to lead the way with our population health strategy. Our talented, patient-focused employees are working to align clinical practices across member organizations and find more opportunities to consistently deliver a great patient experience. The future for EMHS is bright, and to ensure that the system will still be flourishing for generations to come, we continue to invest in our most valued resource: you.
Beginning this fall, in partnership with Husson University, EMHS will offer the Professional and Organizational Development program. This is an interactive training program for leaders and employees, with an added opportunity to earn undergraduate or graduate degree credits. Our goal is to build a dynamic program that will enhance knowledge of the healthcare industry and system operations, in addition to gaining practical skills aligned with accomplishing system goals and strategies. You’ll have a chance to broaden your knowledge base and challenge your skills as you and team members partner throughout the year on a project aimed at offering innovative solutions to issues we face today.
Catharine MacLaren, PhD, vice president of Talent and Diversity at EMHS, says, “We want to continue to provide opportunities to all our employees to help prepare them for advancement wherever they may be in their career. This new program will broaden knowledge and teach practical skills aligned with accomplishing system goals and strategies for all EMHS employees."
Program Details: The program accepts one hundred participants each year from across the system fifty employees in leadership positions in one cohort and fifty employees with no direct reports in the other. This 12-month program will include pre-work before meetings, online participation between sessions, and enriching group projects. There will also be monthly, day-long sessions held in Brewer where participants come together to share ideas, network, and attend engaging seminars led jointly by our resident experts and Husson University faculty members.
