The University of Massachusetts (UMass) and Mass General Brigham in Boston are collaborating with UMass Global to train more than 1,000 under- and unemployed individuals, including current Mass General Brigham workers, to be healthcare workers (HCWs), according to a September 19 UMass Global news release.

The initiative will train candidates as clinical-medical and practice-administrative assistants, phlebotomists, and pharmacy and ECG technicians over a 3-year grant period.

The program is being funded by a $5 million grant from the city of Boston.
