February 2014—The AHRA Education Foundation is proud to announce the return of Partners in Learning! The Partners in Learning program invites AHRA members at any stage of professional development to spend a few days at another healthcare facility to learn how others manage day-to-day operations and important issues, such as patient safety, equipment, and staffing.
AHRA members interested in sharing their experience and knowledge with other members should apply as a host site. Past hosts tell us they enjoy learning from their visitors as much as their visitors enjoy learning from them. Host applications are available online until February 14.
Each year brings a new mix of guests, each hoping to learn about and understand a different combination of skills and technologies in action. While not every host is matched every year, the richness of the program depends on having a large group of potential hosts like you so that guests can find just the right match for their learning needs. General mentoring is a significant benefit to Partners in Learning guest applicants. You do not need to be part of a big facility to make a big impact.
AHRA members interested in visiting a host site will use the guest application. Guest applications will be made available at the beginning of March. Applicants will have the opportunity to review the host sites and select the site that best fits their learning needs. Partners in Learning is generously sponsored by a grant from GE Healthcare. Each guest participant receives up to $1,200 to cover travel expenses.
The Partners in Learning program is open to all AHRA members regardless of experience, rank, or former participation in the program (although please note that past guests are not eligible for repeat funding). The program is especially suitable for new managers or administrators interested in learning about specific processes or simple general mentoring.
