The Czech Republic has been facing a serious problem with the lack of non-medical employees over the past three years. Our school prepares nurses, paramedics and midwifes in the Bachelor degree - on the private basis. Our program supports the quality and effective care in the Czech hospitals and contributes to stabilization of the counts of non-medical employees in the Czech Republic healthcare facilities. Every year, we prepare almost 300 fresh graduates with a Bachelor degree for the non-medical positions.

What resources are required for the case?

Consider human resources, financial resources, infrastructure, in-kind resources and any other type required.

- Academic workers
- Partners and coordinators in the hospitals

What are the enabling factors making this case successful?

Consider institutional support, environmental/social/political factors, etc.

Success of this case is closely linked to the increasing demand of non-medical professional staff in Czech hospitals and the adaptation of our study programs to reflect these challenges.

Why do you consider this case to be good/best practice?

Please consider that a best practice must (a) have a clearly defined objective to increase the connection with the World of Work, (b) address the target groups of the project, (c) be replicable and sustainable, (d) have clearly demonstrated evidence of effectiveness in increasing the connection with the World of Work

Medical College has been monitoring the development of the counts of non-medical staff in Czech hospitals for several years already.
