CareerWise Upper Peninsula is a partnership between U.P. Michigan Works! and CareerWise. The program aims to increase the number of youth apprentices in the UP by offering 3-year long PAID apprenticeship programs to high school students. One of the apprenticeship programs offered is for Clinical Healthcare, where students can work in an entry-level clinical healthcare role such as CNA, phlebotomist, PCT or PT tech. Apprentices then are offered tuition reimbursement benefits by their employer to work toward becoming a radiology tech, RN, OT assistant or MRI tech. The goal of CareerWise U.P.'s Clinical Healthcare track is to increase the number of healthcare workers in the UP.
