The Montefiore Learning Network
The Montefiore Learning Network is a collaborative effort across Montefiore Medical Center and beyond to provide learning programs and resources to support its staff in their work and career. The Network also aims to help Montefiore continue to grow and succeed in its mission to heal, to teach, to discover and to advance the health of the communities we serve.
We have reached thousands of associates across the network in formal classes, new associate and leader orientations, new equipment orientations, management development programs, e-learning opportunities, formal and informal consultations with staff, committee work, team building and strategic planning activities, computer classes, CIS training for professionals and paraprofessionals, continuing education offerings, and career development initiatives.
Patient care is paramount and through educational activities, the Network strives to orient staff, and provide ongoing education that will enhance patient safety and welfare. Montefiore is an academic medical center and, as such, ongoing learning and development should be a goal for each associate. Educational activities focus on "raising the bar" of practice for clinicians and non-clinicians in order to facilitate cutting edge practice, creating an inspiring and motivating place to work, and enhancing individuals' sense of self-worth.
We strive to nurture a creative and critical thinking environment, manage and encourage talent, assist in making Montefiore a "learning place," and address the learning needs of Montefiore associates.
Montefiore offers a robust eLearning system that allows staff to take a variety of courses online, including courses and conferences on patient safety, pain management, Medicare billing and corporate compliance, among a myriad of other courses:
