Abstract / Description

The MediClerk Training Program is a Commonwealth of Massachusetts licensed occupational education program established in 2002. It is designed to enable North Shore adults, who are facing the impacts of income inequality, to develop the skills and professional networks needed to secure entry-level employment in health care administration and support roles. MediClerk and Wellspring House seek adults’ advancement to positions that offer a living wage. Health care is a critical sector on the North Shore with ample career-track opportunities. Access to entry level positions that are tied to career ladders can lead to financial self-sufficiency for individuals and families, opportunities to grow professionally, comprehensive benefits and other supports needed to maintain economic stability. They also assist the students with outside resources that they need assistance which are the following: food assistance, homelessness, unstable housing, domestic violence support, referrals to mental health providers, and much more. The purpose of this internship was to identify a way to provide the students and staff with resources that they will have easy access to. This author created a Google website with the most requested resources with the support and supervision of the students and site supervisor.
