Education and Training
Training and continuous education are critical elements of the healthcare delivery system.
There are shortages in nearly every clinical discipline due predominantly to population aging
and the exponential growth in medical knowledge. Quality healthcare delivery requires a deep
understanding of body systems and how they are affected by a myriad of diseases and injuries.
The shortage of clinical personnel is a nationwide challenge. In Mesa, it is an opportunity for
education providers to work in concert with industry to meet the demands of today and the future.
Mesa has several local healthcare training facilities.
