KPCA WORKFORCE RESOURCES
HR/Workforce Peer Learning Collaborative
Our Human Resources and Workforce teams have joined forces to provide the HR and workforce staff at our health centers the opportunity to learn, share and develop professionally together. This collaborative facilitates conversations between health centers on relevant topics and provides resources to support the workforce of today while preparing for the needs of tomorrow.
Our members post open positions including administrative, clinical, and clerical at their health centers in our Job Board. Additionally, if you are a physician, dentist, or behavioral health professional seeking a position at a community health center, click here (can you hyperlink an email to be sent to me?) to be connected to our Workforce Program Manager.
