Educational Assistance and Professional Development at MHRI
As part of the unified approach to human resources at MedStar, we are excited to let you know MedStar Health has partnered with EdAssist® to provide a best-in-class Educational Assistance Program for MedStar associates.
Effective March 21, 2017, MedStar will be offering this new streamlined Educational Assistance Program to all benefit-eligible associates. The new web-based system will process all tuition benefit requests, making it easier for you to seek approvals and receive reimbursements. In addition, you will now have access to a network of over 220 schools offering discounted tuition rates, as well as educational and finance experts for individual education counseling to help you make the right decisions to achieve your educational goals. This new Educational Assistance Program will result in significant, positive changes in the way an associate’s education and career development is supported at MedStar, addressing concerns brought forth by associates during the bi-annual associate survey process.
Professional Development at MHRI
In addition to this new program, you will continue to have access to professional development funds to support education activities that may not be covered under this new program. There are no changes to the professional development process for MHRI associates. To apply for these funds, you will still need to submit an application through MHRI Human Resources. You can find the application on the HR StarPort Policies page.
If you have questions on either educational assistance or professional development, please feel free to contact Susanne Selzer at [email protected].
