Healthcare Traineeship

Home/Services/Healthcare Traineeship

Healthcare is barely presented as a career option for people without medical training. Our sector loses out on a lot of talent as a result.

Healthcare Traineeships are a new initiative by healthcare organizations and businesses active in the healthcare sector. This program will bridge the gap between academic knowledge and the practical experience required by the job market. Carefully selected trainees will gain work experience on a project basis at leading organizations operating in the different sectors of the healthcare industry. The trainees will be taught management skills and will build a network with various stakeholders. As a result of this collaboration, the traineeship will also be linked to changes in the healthcare sector, such as issues about the affordability of healthcare.

We are looking for organizations to work with us for this traineeship. Would you like to take part?
