UPMC Orthopaedic Care and UPMC Hillman Cancer Center recently partnered with CNX Foundation to launch a new program, UPMC/CNX M.O.V.E.S. (Motivation, Opportunity, Value, Experience, Success). The initiative aims to expand career opportunities for students from the CNX Mentorship Academy into the healthcare sector.

“We are excited to work with CNX on the M.O.V.E.S. initiative,” said MaCalus V. Hogan, MD, chair, UPMC Department of Orthopaedic Surgery and David Silver Professor. "We look forward to providing valuable mentorship and career development opportunities through UPMC Orthopaedics and UPMC Hillman Cancer Center that set students up for successful careers across the spectrum of healthcare."

The program will create defined pathways for Mentorship Academy students to pursue careers at UPMC and across the healthcare spectrum. It will jumpstart immediate career opportunities for young adults right out of high school and post-secondary tracks. The program will align Mentorship Academy students with investments UPMC has made to bolster its workforce, allow for career development, and support the community.
