Ep. 57: Partnering on Tomorrow's Healthcare Workforce

Well Beyond Medicine: The Nemours Children's Health Podcast

Feb 12 2024 • 25 mins

When it comes to providing health services, the most precious resource of any healthcare system, hospital or provider's office is its people: those who make up the healthcare workforce. Yet the nation's expanding healthcare needs are outstripping the workforce size, creating a severe shortage of employees at all levels.

While there is no single solution to the healthcare workforce crisis, a unique partnership pairs Nemours Children's Health with the state's vocational-technical high schools to train high schoolers for healthcare careers.
