There’s no surprise that many employers are shifting to more skill-driven hiring in recent years, including in the healthcare industry. Because of this, many employers require their new hires to have basic skills before starting in a healthcare position, whether it be short-term training or a degree.

By learning the essential skills you need to get ahead of the curve in the ever-changing healthcare industry, you can set yourself apart from your competition through “skillify-ing” yourself. Continue reading to learn how United Career Institute can help you skillify and stand out!

What Is “Skillify-ing”?

Utilizing skills in the workplace is not new; however, many institutions have begun “skillify-ing” their curriculum to better fit the changing healthcare landscape for students and local employers. The concept of skillifying refers to converting concepts learned during classroom curriculum into skills employers and students will find useful.

United Career Institute is one institution that has been focused on developing tangible skills that can be applied to healthcare careers before skill-based learning was common in post-secondary education. As a result of UCI’s skill-driven academic approach, students are prepared to enter the workforce with the skills, hands-on experience, knowledge, and certifications* they need to be successful in the healthcare industry. 

How Can Skillify-ing Impact Your Career?

Emphasizing on developing your skills instead of simply learning concepts about the healthcare industry is going to put you at an advantage when entering the workforce when it comes time to enter the workforce. As the healthcare industry grows and expands, setting yourself apart from your peers who are also on the job hunt can sometimes take time. Attending a skill-focused institution such as United Career Institute, you will develop skills that will directly apply to your chosen career path, and you can expect to gain valuable experience through labs, clinicals, and an externship before entering the workforce!

By skillify-ing, healthcare professionals both currently working and preparing to enter the field can become well-rounded and have the ability to adapt to situations where skill application is required. A better understanding of the healthcare field will enable healthcare professionals to provide their patients with better care. Focusing on skill-based learning also allows future healthcare professionals the opportunity to learn an important range of soft skills, such as communication, critical thinking, problem-solving, decision-making, and more. Skillify-ing will help future healthcare professionals practice with confidence and competence.
