New Apprenticeship Program Aims to Boost Missouri’s Supply of Health Care Workers

A new apprenticeship program aims to help meet Missouri’s growing demand for health care workers.

The Missouri Chamber Foundation has launched the program – with the help of more than 4.3-million dollars in federal funding. Dan Mehan, president and CEO of the Missouri Chamber of Commerce and Industry, says the goal is to offer paid training to about 15-hundred healthcare workers by 2026…

Missouri businesses who participate will get two-thousand dollars for each apprentice they train in occupations such as medical assistant, EMT, phlebotomist, CNA, surgical technician, pharmacy technician, and dental assistant.
