Providing students of modest economic means with a college preparatory education aimed at helping young men and women develop the habits of mind and spirit that will enable them to be successful in college, in their careers, and in life.
Providing meaningful opportunities for professionals to interact with and mentor students while making a difference in their lives. Over 100 Cleveland-area businesses, firms, and non-profits have partnered with Saint Martin.
Saint Martin invites students into our school community who are committed to academic, spiritual, social, emotional, and physical growth. During the admissions process, Saint Martin reviews academic, disciplinary, and attendance records, as well as teacher recommendations.
While we are serious about preparing students for college and career success, we also believe that school should be fun! Caring for the whole student, we believe that involvement in extracurriculars is essential to continuing to form talented, well-rounded, and interesting individuals.
University Hospitals renews their commitment to the Work Study Program and becomes Saint Martin’s largest Corporate Work Study Partner. Expanding their team from 13 student workers to 37 student workers next year, University Hospitals is preparing the next generation of healthcare professionals in Cleveland.
As proud partners of the Corporate Work Study Program since 2008, students have worked across various University Hospitals campuses including the Main Campus, Seidman Cancer Center, St. John Medical Center, and Lake Health. Whether they are sterilizing instruments for surgeries or providing health education to cancer patients, students are not only filling a need in each department through their daily tasks but they are also gaining exposure to healthcare career opportunities. The ultimate goal would be for students to turn their work study experience into long term career opportunities.
M. Ross Vincent, MBA, FACHE, Administrative Director of the Neurological Institute, shares, “University Hospitals is proud to be the top supporter of the Corporate Work Study Program in Cleveland! We are excited to develop and mold young caregivers which is something we do not take lightly. We are passionate about continuing in our mission to heal, to teach, and to discover as we provide meaningful experiences to students while also filling an operational need for us.”
Next year’s expanded partnership between University Hospitals and Saint Martin comes from the opportunity to fill an important void in the healthcare industry. As hospitals come off emergency status because of the COVID-19 pandemic and military personnel who were called in to assist leave, there is still a need to provide basic assistance on inpatient units.
Vincent notes, “It is no secret that there is a national shortage of workers especially in the areas of nursing and medical assistants. As we continue to address this issue on both a regional and national level, we saw an opportunity to leverage our partnership with Saint Martin’s Work Study Program that perfectly fit our needs. We can train students to provide basic assistance such as stocking patient rooms, running lab samples, and much more, which is where we need the most help.” In addition, it will introduce students that are interested in the health care field to a career track that could result in a return to UH for full time employment.
Thank you University Hospitals for your commitment to our program over the last 14 years!
