Need for Medical Assistants Drives New Training Program

Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! convened a consortium of regional hospitals and training providers to discuss ongoing hiring needs in the health care industry. The result of our meetings is a new, accelerated training program for medical assistants that begins January 2019.

With the help of Covenant HealthCare, McLaren, and MidMichigan Health, Delta College is creating a three-semester curriculum designed to move those interested in the field through the certification process quicker. Successful trainees will be guaranteed a chance to interview with each of the hospitals and/or their subsidiaries for employment.

Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! is providing a series of information sessions at our service centers to attract job seekers and trainees, and will provide scholarships for those who qualify.

“For more than 10 years, the GLBMW Healthcare Industry Council has been working together to address common industry challenges,” says Kristen Wenzel, Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! chief operating officer. “This is yet another example of innovation and cooperation that helps each member company solve talent and recruitment shortages.”

Are you in an industry that shares common hiring needs? Remember, Great Lakes Bay Michigan Works! is an excellent place to turn for help convening cooperative industry groups for hiring challenges. We regularly work with manufacturers, health care providers, the construction industry, information technology, and customer-service-driven businesses.
