Training and Education for a
Career in Healthcare

In partnership with Urban Dreams, Central Iowa HealthWorks, Des Moines Public Schools, and DMACC, Broadlawns Medical Center is proud to offer paid internship opportunities for high school students (T.E.C.H.) and adults (T.E.A.C.H.) who are interested in pursuing a career in healthcare. Participants are introduced to Broadlawns’ work culture, career paths, and complete Basic and Advanced Certified Nursing Assistant (CNA) training over a 12 week period.

Established in 2016, the T.E.C.H. and T.E.A.C.H. programs are part of a multifaceted approach to address the social determinants of health for the North Des Moines community. As the largest employer in North Des Moines, Broadlawns recognizes that attending to the overall health of the community extends beyond providing traditional medical care. T.E.C.H. and T.E.A.C.H provide an opportunity for training and potential employment to change the lives of youth, adults, their families, and our community.  Applicants must complete a rigorous application process.

Internship participants are identified as having one or more barrier to employment and/or are at the highest risk of disengaging from high school. With a focus on the Broadlawns neighboring community, the majority of interns will be selected from 50314 and 50316 zip codes.  This represents the area in Des Moines with the highest poverty and unemployment rates.

Upcoming programs will include an adult program in winter 2018 and a youth program in summer 2019.
