Solutions for the Healthcare Staffing Crisis | MedCerts

Is Short-Term Online Career Training Right for You?

MedCerts is more than just a school. With over 35,000 students, MedCerts was named to Inc. Magazine’s 5000 fastest-growing companies list in 2019. The unique value MedCerts offers is our direct-to-consumer certifications. Students aren't trained for generic healthcare jobs; instead, they're trained for the specific skills they'll need to succeed in actual organizations. 

MedCerts turns students into skilled professionals and connects them with the workplaces that need them most. Here's an overview of how our pioneering healthcare training solutions can resolve some of the most common staffing issues. 

Qualified Job Candidates

Qualified healthcare professionals can be hard to find. Typical job searches operate on a "post and hope" approach, where your job listing is open for anyone to apply. There are two major problems with this approach:

  1. You’ll receive job applications from candidates who aren't qualified
  2. Qualified candidates, overwhelmed by their options, might not see your job posting

At MedCerts, we nip both of these problems in the bud. We interview students to determine their career goals and set them on a path for success. When you have job openings, we send you only the best candidates for your specific needs. Unique "try-out interviews" even allow you to see how potential new hires work and collaborate with your team.

Career Training That Works

We understand the importance of quality job training. Poorly trained hires lead to high turnover rates, which can be expensive and bad for staff morale.

Typical on-the-job training uses senior staff members to train junior staff members during the workday. There are a number of problems with this approach:

  • Senior staff members aren't trained educators and may not do a good job teaching junior staff members
  • Training is often uneven, as it’s based on which issues happen to come up throughout the course of the day rather than what employees need to know in order to succeed
  • Training pulls staff members away from regular job duties on training days, slowing down your facility

MedCerts healthcare training solutions eliminate the problems caused by conventional methods. We train candidates for specific jobs in your facility. You control this training, from which topics need to get covered to labeling supplies with your own branding. We provide the trained educators and cohesive lessons your future staff needs to do their jobs well.

Deciding what you want your staff to learn ahead of time and letting us take care of instruction helps everyone succeed. Your new hires will be ready to excel in your facility from day one. Senior staff members can lead by example rather than trying to explicitly train, and you can feel confident knowing which skills your new employees have mastered.
