From:Cardiac Care Clinic Medical Director
Attachment(s):Working in Teams, Working with Deliverables

Welcome to Cardiac Care Clinic. I would like to personally welcome you to the company.

We are very excited to have reached a funding level that allows us to hire a team of medical assistants. In your first months here, you will learn about the cardiovascular system, research relevant cardiovascular diseases, take vital signs and interpret data, create and deliver presentations as case studies for patients . These assignments may take you out of your comfort zone and push you to think in new ways. However, we are certain that the excitement of solving these challenges will more than make up for the difficulties you might encounter.

We expect each of you to make the patient’s needs your priority by contributing to your team and producing quality, finished products on time. We have worked hard to develop a reputation for excellence. We are currently the leader in cardiovascular prevention in the Hawaiian Islands. We hope to be a model for health care management and prevention in the pacific region within the next five years. I hope you will be an integral part of helping us reach that goal.

Your Role
Our excellent reputation is spreading. As a result, we have been funded by the Hawaii State Department of Health to screen high-risk population for signs of heart diseases and stroke - the Healthy Heart program. Hence, we need to hire a new team of medical assistants to offer these services.

We are looking for individuals who demonstrate knowledge of the cardiovascular system, possess excellent communication skills, and, most importantly, work collaboratively in a team to care for patients professionally and ethically.
