Foreign-born healthcare professionals represent a diverse and experienced, yet hidden talent pool with the skills and experience to fill the predicted skill shortages in healthcare. With support of the Silicon Valley Community Foundation and McKesson Corporation, Upwardly Global recently launched a Healthcare Employment Project to facilitate job placements for our foreign trained and educated physicians, nurses, mental health professionals and clinical researchers. We invite you to join us for a unique networking opportunity to connect with this pool of talent.
