Workforce Development

We want to help you grow.

Professional development at UVM Health Network starts with an orientation that develops your understanding of us and our network. It continues with training within your specific department, as determined by your leader, so that you can learn your new role.

At UVM Health Network, we are dedicated to creating additional opportunities for development, so you can advance in your field and reach for new roles (potentially in a different field) within our organization.

Some of the supports we provide include:

  • On the job training programs (you can get paid while you learn)
  • Leadership development programs to help prepare you for an expanded role
  • Internal courses on topics such as diversity and inclusion
  • Tuition reimbursement to encourage you to continue to learn and grow (these vary by organization, to learn more, please check the policy of the specific affiliate that you work at).

Partnership with Working Fields

A new pilot program between the University of Vermont Health Network and Working Fields aims to join a handful of employers in the area in building recovery-friendly workplaces, offering jobs and a support network to individuals who may not traditionally qualify for employment. The pilot program was created in June 2022 with 15 positions in UVM Health Network – Central Vermont Medical Center’s Environmental Services department.

The pilot will focus on filling positions in the environmental services team, which involves cleaning and sanitizing the facility, including operating rooms and medical equipment. The work also uses highly specialized techniques to prevent the spread of infection within the health care setting.

If successful, the UVM Health Network would look to expand the program to other affiliate hospitals, such as The University of Vermont Medical Center, and include jobs in more departments like transportation, nutrition services and couriers.
