NALHE partners with OpusVi for more equity in healthcare education

3 min read


OpusVi is announcing its partnership with The National Association of Latino Healthcare Executives (NALHE), a national organization led by Latino/Latina executive leaders of U.S. hospitals and healthcare organizations and experts in the fields of healthcare policy and practice. Through the partnership, NALHE members will have exclusive access to scholarships for OpusVi’s suite of online education and workforce development programs

OpusVi will also be attending NALHE’s 2022 Leadership Summit as an exclusive educational partner. The summit, happening on September 29 to 30, 2022, will give attendees opportunities to learn more about healthcare leadership, COVID-19 resilience and recovery, improving diversity and inclusion, technology and cyber security in healthcare, and other healthcare workforce development topics. OpusVi will be promoting a scholarship advancing diversity, equity, and inclusion exclusive to NALHE members during the summit. 

A partnership to strengthen diversity, equity, and inclusion in healthcare education and training

“We are proud to form this partnership with NALHE in our continued commitment to diversity, equity, and inclusion,” says Nejla Turdiu, Senior Director of Business and Workforce Development at OpusVi. “In December of last year, we partnered with The National Association of Health Services Executives (NAHSE), a not-for-profit association founded to promote the advancement of Black healthcare leaders and elevate the quality of healthcare services available to minority and underserved communities. They are closely associated with NALHE, so this was a natural next step. Latino and Latina professionals make up a significant part of the healthcare workforce, and we hope to serve as many healthcare workers as we can through this partnership.”


According to the New American Economy Research Fund, Hispanic workers account for 13% of the healthcare workforce. However, that number shrinks when considering roles that are likely to reach executive-level positions, such as nurses (8.4%), physicians and surgeons (6.5%), compared to health aides (17.1%).

“We hope that by making healthcare education more accessible through our partnership with OpusVi, this gap can be closed and senior-level Latino and Latina representation in hospitals and health systems in the United States can be increased,” says Rolando J. Gomez, Executive Director of NALHE. “Diversity in healthcare and leadership positions is not a luxury, but a necessity — not only for the medical community but also for patients who will be able to receive care from healthcare professionals who fully empathize with them because they lived the same experiences.”


Expert-informed healthcare education created for impact

The partnership allows NALHE members even more opportunities to actively participate in enhancing their career and improving the health outcomes of their community.

OpusVi’s high-quality healthcare education and workforce development solutions are created with reputable educational institutions with expertise from healthcare professionals in OpusVi’s extensive network, allowing for highly relevant learning content. Through social learning tools and personalized feedback from expert instructors, there are networking and mentorship opportunities.
