ACCES is Now Offering Healthcare Connections – Alternative Career Opportunities for IEHPs

ACCES Employment will support Internationally Educated Healthcare Professionals (IEHPs) through the launch of a new program called Healthcare Connections. This program will benefit IEHPs by offering alternative career options to those who have chosen not to pursue licensure in their respective professions at this point, or those who are exploring other ways to remain connected to the healthcare industry while pursuing accreditation. Healthcare Connections will assist newcomer professionals with a healthcare background to transfer to one of four alternative career options: Healthcare Supply Chain; Sales of Pharmaceuticals or Medical Supplies; Clinical Office Administration; and Self-Employment (in a healthcare context).

Through Healthcare Connections, IEHPs will receive:

  • Information necessary to transfer their healthcare skills to one of four featured careers
  • Canadian workplace communications skills specific to the healthcare profession in Canada
  • Career planning by identifying transferable skills through the development of a ‘BioTalent’ Canada portfolio
  • ‘BioReady™’ recognition and access to ‘BioSkills Match’, a national database of BioReady talent
  • One-to-one employment support featuring job search strategies, employment placement and/or business start-up coaching
  •  Connections with employers who are recruiting and hiring from ACCES Employment’s programs
  • Access to post-hire support or ongoing business coaching as required

“At ACCES Employment, we see many newcomer healthcare professionals who require alternative career options in the healthcare sector in Canada. We have extensive experience developing and delivering sector-specific employment programs that support Internationally Trained Professionals to find work in their field. We are pleased to expand our portfolio of services to include the new Healthcare Connections program.” - Allison Pond, President & CEO, ACCES Employment

To be eligible for the program, individuals must be internationally educated healthcare professionals in a regulated health profession, fluent in English, and permanent residents or convention refugees of Canada. This program is free-of-charge and is funded by the Immigration, Refugees, and Citizenship Canada (IRCC).
