Inclusive Pathways Program
UChicago Medicine is proud to partner with The Anixter Center of Chicago to provide the Inclusive Pathways Program, a joint initiative to support individuals with disabilities applying for positions at the academic medical center. Qualified program participants will meet one on one with our Disabilities Inclusion Coordinator to determine which open positions at UChicago Medicine best fit your interests and needs. Our Disability Inclusion Coordinator will then provide you with any necessary assistance throughout your experience, as you apply to and interview for positions, answer any questions you may have as a new hire, and provide support throughout your first year to ensure you feel adequately supported.
We are a community of game changers. Tougher. Stronger. Smarter. And the same relentlessness that’s put us at the forefront of health care delivery and patient experience on a global scale has made us an extraordinary place to work. If you are someone with a disability who would like support in applying to a job at UChicago Medicine, the Inclusive Pathways Program is designed to support your success.
