Professional Development

Professional Development

Success within a company doesn't just happen. It requires committed teams of talented people who understand and embrace an organization's goals and work together at the highest level to achieve them.

We stand strong behind our commitment to making communities healthier. We know that providing high-quality care depends on our ability to find, keep and empower creative and determined people who share in our commitment to our mission.

We focus on four primary strategies to support our vision of creating places where employees want to work:

Emerging Talent Programs

Our Emerging Talent Programs are proven innovative solutions to provide career development opportunities that are designed to advance clinical knowledge, enhance personal talents and promote healthcare specialty collaboration.

For emerging clinicians in a variety of healthcare professions, we provide internships and rotations through academic partnerships nationwide. Current employees may advance their skills and earn industry-recognized certifications through specialty educational programs, including online learning and in-person instruction and support. Supporting new graduates and current employees in this way enhances individual career pathways and promotes excellence in patient care.  

Leadership development

Training and education are vital elements of our leadership and talent development strategy. Our CEO, CFO and CNO development programs, like our customized Executive Fellows Program, allow us to cultivate leaders for the future and promote high-potential talent from within our Lifepoint family.  

Our online LifeTalent Center and other programs give employees convenient access to training and educational opportunities that help them achieve professional and personal performance goals.

Performance management

Continuous feedback and individual accountability are fundamentals of success. Our performance management initiative ensures that all employees know what it takes to be successful, and that each individual's efforts are purposefully aligned with measurable goals at every level of the organization. We leverage this process to foster engagement and recognition, by ensuring our employees have clear expectations within their roles and feel valued for the contributions they make to our organization.

Succession planning

Our targeted succession planning initiatives identify an internal bench of top talent and offer development opportunities to prepare them to fill crucial roles in the organization as they become available. Planning for the future by developing leaders internally helps create career paths for employees who want to advance their careers while continuing to support our mission.

We are an equal-opportunity employer. We believe our employees are our most valuable assets. We do not discriminate against any person on the basis of race, color, national origin, disability, or age, in admission, treatment, or participation in our programs, services and activities, or employment.
