They will be best at helping people when they are having their own rewarding and authentic experience, so our part of the deal is to ensure that is happening.
Training and Development
In the first day or two of a person starting to onboard I sit down with them and tell them about our unique take on values.(…) Then I demonstrate our values by pre-forgiving them for the inevitable human mistakes that every person makes when starting a new job.
Advance Medical maintains a strong sense of culture and identity that is demonstrated at every level of its practices. From onboarding to retirement, culture and the importance of cultural fit are heavily emphasized - prospective team members undergoing rigorous vetting for cultural alignment. Advance Medical seeks team members who are intrinsically driven towards their values and cultural mindset.
Once new team members have been selected, Advance Medical’s training aligns directly with their value for excellent service to patients: “the training program is infused with the ‘why’, which is never more than two steps away from how it improves patient care.”
Given this commitment to the intrinsic motivation of its team, Advance Medical invests heavily in training and developing its team members: “Would rather turn an Advance Medical person into an accountant than an accountant into an advance medical person.”
Personal Growth at Advance Medical is not only encouraged, but actively supported and expected.
Values in Action

Feedback from the front lines
"I worried ProHabits would be time consuming, but once I got started, it was apparent that they were activities designed to help me build better habits in my work day. Certainly very easy to fall into the same routine! I chose the Mindfulness exercises, and I’ve enjoyed the breathing activities, because I’ve found when I get stressed, I’m less mindful of my breathing. I find that it’s brought about a lot of discussion amongst myself and my co-workers. Each morning we share what our activity for the day is, and it’s helpful to simply acknowledge that we may be stressed, or we are having a hard time focusing or being positive. Before ProHabits, we may not have been so open about how we were feeling stressed, but now with our daily activities, it’s brought attention to habits we may have not considered before.”

"I have learned to slow down, to breath before and after a task, be present in each task. I am really trying to listen, I did not realize how often I inject into a conversation until you stop yourself intentionally. I do need to improve my concentration, ask a person to hold one moment so I can finish my thought or action."
