Baptist Health Louisville is committed to continuous quality improvement. At the root of this commitment is the professional and personal development of our employees.
We believe that growth occurs when individuals challenge their minds and continually pursue their personal best performance. We intend to provide opportunities and resources for knowledge enrichment and skill enhancement. A commitment to lifelong learning enhances our ability to meet the challenges of the ever-changing healthcare field.
The Education and Development Department of Baptist Health Louisville supports educational programs for all employees, community healthcare providers and physicians. We provide continuing education programs for all disciplines, inservice programs for employees, leadership development training, safety/OSHA training, and self-study professional development options.
Continuing education offerings include:
- Critical Care Courses
- Clinical Concepts
- General Courses
- Dysrhythmia Courses
In addition, the department operates a cutting-edge Simulation Lab located on the hospital's first floor.
The department is also charged with shaping and reinforcing leadership skills at Baptist Health Louisville. The primary vehicle for that is the Baptist Health Leadership College.
The Leadership College offers specially designed courses for newly promoted or newly hired managers and directors (or those identified for succession planning); experienced supervisors and managers (or those with supervisory responsibilities) and those at the director/administrative level.
