Hyderabad, December 20: The Rajiv Education and Employment Mission in Andhra Pradesh (REEMAP) has tied up with Hyderabad based MedSkills Learning to run a pilot project involving training of 240 unemployed youth and their placement in the health care segment.
MedSkills Learning will conduct the trainings in two locations: Hyderabad and Mehbubnagar under this pilot project. In Mehbubnagar, MEdRC will work in collaboration with the Catholic Health Association of India (CHAI).
Speaking on the occasion Prof K.C. Reddy, chairman of REEMAP said, "This initiative will help students in not only securing a job but also in acquiring skills that can contribute to the health care sector where the requirement is vast."
Dr. Neeraj Raj, Founder & Director of MEdRC said "We are taking this government initiative very positively and would want students from different backgrounds to be a part of this initiative. We will be more than happy to help them learn the skills one requires for the healthcare industry."
Mentioning about the shortage of manpower at all levels of health systems, M. N. Rao, Chairman of MEdRC said, "I believe that our initiative with REEMAP could help in partially bridging this demand supply skill gap. Enhanced health literacy in general and relevant education to employees in the health sector in specific can have a multiplier effect on the industry."
