Lansing, Mich. — ACEMAPP and Medical Opportunities, both services of the Michigan Health Council, today announced plans to merge. Together as ACEMAPP Jobs, they will offer health care students and professionals the opportunity to match to their ideal job based on their clinical experience as well as their specialty, schedule and location preferences.
“For 24 years, Medical Opportunities has been dedicated to supporting employers in their efforts to build their medical teams,” said Stacie Longwell Sadowski, Director of Medical Opportunities. “What we’ve realized is that as our employers undergo their own mergers and acquisitions, they are competing for health care professionals on a national level.”
Currently, Medical Opportunities matches Nurse Practitioners, Physician Assistants and Physicians to jobs across a five state region. Upon launch, ACEMAPP Jobs will allow employers to connect with candidates who want to work in their area from all 50 states. In addition, more job types will be added to include Medical Assistants, Certified Nursing Assistants, Licensed Practical Nurses, and Registered Nurses.
“As ACEMAPP has continued to grow, we’ve made collecting and acting upon feedback a top priority,” said Stacy Gradowski, Director of ACEMAPP. “Schools want their students to find jobs after graduation, and clinical sites want to find professionals who will thrive in their facility. It’s only natural that we would look for ways to streamline that process.”
ACEMAPP is a clinical education solution that is used by schools, clinical sites, and consortiums nationwide. Developed in response to scarce clinical rotations, ACEMAPP has since evolved to offer various tools and services intended to increase efficiency, improve communication and simplify the clinical education process.
“We recognize that our clinical sites invest a great deal of time and resources into creating a positive clinical rotation experience for students. Because of that, we’re building ACEMAPP Jobs to deliver extensive data to effectively track ROI,” said Gradowski.
By adding recruitment opportunities to the clinical education process, employers will be able to pre-screen candidates who have already been through a clinical experience in ACEMAPP. Documents stored within ACEMAPP are never deleted, including transcripts, courses, immunization records, background checks, and more. Additionally, students are able to share their clinical, educational and professional experience in a shareable ePortfolio.
“We’re thrilled to be able to offer our Medical Opportunities members the chance to connect with a broader network of candidates and employers,” said Longwell Sadowski. “The best part though, is knowing that all of our users will have access to a platform that is more secure, easier to use and contains more features.”
ACEMAPP Jobs will launch as a service line of ACEMAPP in the summer of 2018 and will not affect regular use of ACEMAPP. Current users of Medical Opportunities will be redirected to the ACEMAPP website when the transition occurs. Training opportunities will be available this summer for Medical Opportunities members to review changes and improvements to the system.
