A unique program for recruiting and integrating internationally-educated professionals has earned Toronto’s St. Michael’s Hospital (SMH) a coveted spot on the 2013 list of Best Employers for New Canadians.
Among SMH’s more than 5,100 employees are internationally educated professionals from 85 countries. Nearly half of those come from the Philippines, India and China.
The hospital partners with the Career Bridge Program to hire and mentor foreign-trained professionals as paid interns in non-clinical roles. Non-clinical staff working in areas like human resources, education services and research make up approximately 25 per cent of the hospital’s staff.
