Welcome back to your healthcare profession!
Colorado Welcome Back by Spring Institute helps foreign-trained healthcare professionals reestablish healthcare careers in Colorado.
We seek to build a bridge between the pool of internationally-trained health workers living in our state and the need for linguistically and culturally competent healthcare providers.
The goal is for participants to be “job ready” in over 40 healthcare careers through a series of services including career planning, training workshops, employment support, and identification of interim opportunities.
Our approach is unique in emphasizing long-term steps necessary for participants to gain information, training, experience, and/or credentials in their field. This method has proven to be highly effective and more than 700 people have participated in the program from over 97 countries.
Some recent participant successes include:
- 5 of our participants were accepted into Medical Residency programs in the 2017 Match! This makes 24 International Medical Graduates (IMGs) successfully matching since 2012.
- Aicha, a Physician from Mali, was accepted into the Physician Assistant program at the University of Colorado this year – with a full scholarship!
- Since 2013, Colorado Welcome Back has helped over 200 participants gain employment in healthcare
