In light of the coronavirus pandemic and the reopening of states across the United States, healthcare workers have been indispensable, and their work is needed now more than ever. The program offered by UMass and Mass General Brigham will allow current healthcare workers to continue learning at their own pace and at an affordable price. Mass General Brigham’s employees will have access to an online Bachelor’s in Business degree and a Practice Assistance Training Program Certificate. The online training aims to decrease the skills gap in the healthcare system and offer accessible lifelong learning opportunities to our frontline workers.
“Simply put, there is no partnership more powerful than one between the Commonwealth’s largest employer and its public university,” UMass President Marty Meehan said. “Through this initiative, we are expanding our ability to deliver on our mission of educating Massachusetts citizens and supporting our business community in the most innovative way possible.”
The New England Council commends the University of Massachusetts for offering essential programs to our healthcare workers. Read more from Mass General Brigham.
