Fort Myers, Florida — Florida Cancer Specialists & Research Institute (FCS) announced a partnership with Strayer University’s Grads to Work program that will tap individuals interested in long-term employment in the health care sector who may not otherwise have means to support their education and provide them with a pathway to a nonclinical associate degree as they pursue their career goals.
After successfully completing a 5-week workforce readiness course, candidates will initially be eligible to interview for open positions at Florida Gulf Coast locations. Additional positions will become available throughout the practice’s nearly 100 locations as the program develops.
“Our statewide practice is at the forefront of cancer care and clinical research. We believe that combining employment and educational opportunities will create enormous opportunity and positive change in communities across Florida,” said Nathan H. Walcker, MBA, chief executive officer, FCS.
