Career Development Ladder

The career development program is designed to recognize competency and commitment among licensed professionals and paraprofessionals who deliver direct patient care. Advancement in the program requires that the individual take initiative by being self directed and accountable for the development of clinical expertise, leadership and professionalism.

The career development ladder allows therapists and assistants to develop career paths which have professional and financial rewards, while allowing them to remain in clinical practice. The program enhances the quality of patient care by requiring continued professional development and promotion of mentorship among experienced staff to new therapists and assistants. This unique benefit allows Saint Francis Medical Center to attract and retain quality experienced therapists and assistants who have the ability to deliver the level of patient care expected.
