WakeMed staff have access to a wealth of continuing education and professional training resources.
WakeMed offers traditional continuing education, on-site specific training, tuition reimbursement, on-line programs and tracking of individual employee's educational plans and courses, brokered training resources and direct teaching by faculty and staff who are on-site every day.
In addition to this, the WakeMed Foundation offers an Employee Skills Development Scholarship that enables employees to enhance their job skills through avenues not typically supported by budgeted continuing education or tuition reimbursement programs.
