The following list of Montana health care employers and organizations have joined HealthCARE Montana in its efforts to address local healthcare shortages at hospitals, primary and ambulatory care clinics, long-term care facilities, veteran’s care and other healthcare providers throughout the state.

Montana health care employers and organizations provide direct input at the committee level but most of the feedback comes through a rapid response communication process with providers around the state (link to diagram) where regional Workforce Coordinators visit with employers on an individual basis to gather immediate feedback on health care issues (link to assessment, etc.). 

A number of employers participate in regional and statewide workforce advisory councils for more in-depth discussion about health care workforce related topics and advisement on grant related issues.  Most of the employers listed participated in the initial assessment (link) conducted in the summer of 2015 that provided the foundation for the employer input to the curriculum adaptions.

WHAT IS HEALTHCARE APPRENTICESHIP?

Apprenticeship is a time-tested, “earn while you learn” strategy with a combination of on-the-job training, related instruction online or in a classroom, mentorship, and incremental wage increases. Employers work with the Registered Apprenticeship Program to identify competencies, timelines, and related coursework.
