WSHEF Early Careerist Spotlight

2019 Early Careerist Program | WSHEF

An ACHE Innovation Grant-Funded Effort


WSHEF obtained an Innovations Grant in 2019 to initiate the establishment of an Early Careerist program.  We utilized our state-wide Champions Network to identify ACHE members who are under 40 years of age and completed their degrees five to seven years ago to engage them in a meaningful way by experiencing the benefits of ACHE through WSHEF.  Early Careerists were nominated and we had 11 participate in a program that integrated professional networking, continuing education and personal/professional development. 


Each participant was able to attend two Meet and Mingle events where they were able to network across a diverse group of event attendees.  These were socially oriented events meant to establish a closer professional network across the state.  Attendance was also gained to WSHEF’s Annual Breakfast, hosted during Washington State Hospital Association’s annual conference, where the Early Careerists were able to earn 1.5 Face to Face education credits by listening to area experts discuss service line development at their respective organizations.  Finally, the Early Careerists were able to measure their emotional intelligence through Medix’s proprietary MyPrintTM behavioral assessment tool and navigated session sponsored by Medix.


We have been able to highlight the Early Careerists throughout the year in our quarterly newsletters, showcasing their backgrounds and introducing them to WSHEF’s membership.  The entire program was well received by the early careerists as is evidenced through their feedback that included some of these supportive statements:

·        “This was one of the best professional events I’ve done”

·        “It [MyPrint assessment] broke down traits and behaviors I can focus on in my development”

·        “Gave me great insights in to my strengths and weaknesses”


The grant-funded program has truly helped to initiate an Early Careerist program, it is our hope to build upon this great base as we work with WSHEF’s membership to advance development across the state.
