JobMedic.com Revolutionizing Healthcare Recruiting for Job Seekers and Employers

Houston, Texas, March 18, 2015 — /EPR HEALTHCARE NEWS/ — JobMedic.com is a new Houston-based company with a mission to improve healthcare recruiting. It is a new comprehensive web platform to find healthcare jobs and pair them with qualified candidates. JobMedic.com will serve as a new access point in the Healthcare Industry, providing relevant news summaries and information, career opportunities, company profiles, relevant career discussions, continued education and more.

“The need for a platform of this nature came to our attention when we found out there are currently thousands of unfilled jobs within the Texas Medical Center. We decided to create an evolved job board to better connect job seekers and employers within the Healthcare field for a more useful experience,” says Matt Bertram, Head of Business Development.

Different from other job-search engines, JobMedic.com serves as a talent acquisition platform and is an efficient way for employers to advertise healthcare positions and attract qualified job seekers.

Kyle Johnson, CMO & CTO at JobMedic.com, states, “Other job site platforms fail to cater to the needs of the healthcare industry and/or are extremely broad for recruiters to efficiently maneuver within a timely manner. We want to be the one-stop-shop for job seekers and employers under the healthcare umbrella to locate and place top candidates within the industry.”

For every approved resume that is uploaded, JobMedic.com will donate to the Doctors without Borders organization to support medical actions being conducted throughout 70 countries around the world. JobMedic.com will be running a campaign to raise $10,000 by July 2015.

Fostering People Ireland Announces Recruitment Events

Fostering People Ireland, the non-statutory Dublin-based fostering agency, has announced two upcoming events aimed at recruiting more carers to help the growing number of children in need of care in the capital and the surrounding area. Fostering People Ireland has grown its reputation since its launch in September 2011, but remains in need of qualified, enthusiastic carers.

The first event will be held at Maudlin House Hotel in Naas, County Kildare on 23 May 2012 from 4pm – 8pm. The second event will be held on 6 June 2012 at the Premier Inn, Airparks in Swords, County Dublin from 4pm – 8pm. Refreshments will be provided at both events.

The fostering agency based in Dublin is encouraging people from all walks of life to come and talk to their advisors about all things fostering, from qualities needed to become a foster carer to fees and allowances. The events are an ideal opportunity for people to have an informal chat with the agency’s foster care experts in order to see if caring would be a good fit for them.

Whilst Foster Care Fortnight is in full swing in the UK, Fostering People Ireland is determined to keep the spotlight firmly on addressing the growing need for carers in the Dublin area.

Lesley Dale, Service Manager at Fostering People Ireland, said: “Events like these are crucial in helping people find out whether fostering is right for them. Whether they are able to drop by for a quick chat or stay for a drink to discuss fostering, we can provide the information that can help them make the decision that has the potential to change the lives of children in need.

“Fostering People have really made a name for themselves in Ireland as an independent fostering agency with a great network of support for its foster carers. We hope that these events will help us get that message across and convince people that deciding to become a foster carer is life changing.”

Featuring state of the art performance fabric and flattering designs, Medelita offers a long-needed upgrade from the baffling display of flimsy material and ill-fitting silhouettes that have become the subpar standard for white lab coats.

Founded by a clinician, Medelita was born out of personal experience and a true need in the healthcare industry – to offer functional, performance-based lab coats and scrubs of superb quality. Whether they are new to the field or seasoned veterans, medical professionals in all specialties find Medelita lab coats to be perfectly matched to their needs – with ergonomic fit, superb durability, and professional styling.

Medelita Offers New Caribbean Blue Medical Scrubs

Medelita®, maker of breakthrough performance medical scrubs and lab coats for both men and women, is excited to announce a new color option for their popular medical scrubs. Just in time for summer, Medelita is calling to mind tropical beaches and warm sunny days with the introduction of Caribbean Blue clinician scrubs for women and scrubs for men. Flattering on all skin tones, this modern and professional color is a statement of quality and achievement with name and title embroidery in the clinician scrubs teal option or men’s scrubs cocoa option. Caribbean Blue scrubs will be available for pre-order on July 1st with shipping commencing on July 15th.

The vast majority of scrubs on the market today are boxy, ill-fitting, and un-flattering. These shapeless, unisex uniforms fail to portray the level of

professionalism of those working in healthcare and dentistry. As an Emergency Medicine Physician Assistant, Medelita Founder Lara Manchik, PA-C found herself constantly frustrated by uncomfortable fabrics, horrendous fits, and frumpy silhouettes. By founding Medelita, she set out to create a paradigm shift and offer high quality lab coats and scrubs consistent with the level of prestige and achievement earned by doctors, surgeons, dentists, PAs and other medical professionals.

Unlike most companies, Medelita offers different styles and colors in medical scrubs designed specifically for men or women. With Medelita, medical professionals are no longer forced to wear the bulky and uncomfortable unisex medical scrubs that became prevalent during the last five decades. Featuring ergonomic design features, Medelita scrubs allow professionals a wide range of motion and comfort.

In addition to looking good and feeling comfortable, Medelita medical scrubs are also designed to be both functional and durable. Medelita scrubs are made with a special performance drirelease® fabric with FreshGuard® – making them moisture-wicking, quick drying, and odor-resistant. Drirelease® fabric pulls moisture away from the skin and help to regulate skin temperature, minimizing sweat and discomfort. FreshGuard® is bacteriostatic; it neutralizes and inhibits the growth of bacterial odors – virtually eliminating odor from the uniform.

That is our commitment to our customers and colleagues. We are excited to provide this additional service to our prestigious customer base.”

The embroidered logos are digitized in-house by the expert embroidery team at Medelita, and are stitched directly to the medical uniforms rather than being applied as a typical patch logo. For both custom logos and Professional Organization logos, Medelita embroidery exudes the very highest level of quality and professionalism while making a bold statement to patients and colleagues alike.

White Collar Uniform®, makers of the all new prestigious women’s lab coats is having their Grand Opening this month at our new exiting website online. White Collar Uniform’s clothing has been described as breakthrough clothing for men and women doctors and physicians in the medical field. White Collar clothing has been described by many medical professionals as being practical and having overwhelming beauty and style.

Our women and men lab coats are very upscale clothing for doctors and we have a very creative designing team working around the clock to make you look good. White Collar has invented the first every lab coat that can interact with the wearer by helping the doctor to hold their tools while in the consultation room and on the floor. This lab coat is spectacular says one doctor who happened to see our lab coats for the first time. We have created the best looking lab coat in the world and nobody can make claims against that!

White Collar Uniform’s top of the line lab coats can be purchased for under $50.00, which is more than a 45% savings from our standard price.

Our top of the line lab coats are loaded with goodies that the doctors are going to really enjoy. Just take a look at our lab coats on any picture and you will see that we are the best looking coats out there – hands down!

Attention: There has been a lot of recent articles talking about lab coats and transmitting bacteria via through lab coats. Most doctors hang on to their lab coats for ages until they finally have to throw it away. We recommend that you change your lab coat every six months. There has been a lot of talk about soil proof coats and treated fabrics, “Don’t be too quick to get on this band-wagon!” Studies have show that these clothing can not be autoclaved so be careful about their labeling in general.

Don’t spend a lot of money on scrubs and lab coats that won’t hold up to the test of time. These so-called treated clothing’s are very expensive and they will probably send you running to the bank for cover. If it doesn’t say white collar, “Then it must be blue!” Save yourself a bundle and shop for White Collar Uniforms when you decide to purchase your next order of lab coats or scrubs online. Also you should watch out for repellant type materials which makes claims that doesn’t make sense most of the time.

White Collar Uniforms was founded several years ago by a well known inventor and medical provider in the medical field. He wanted to design a men’s lab coat for men and women that could let them use their hands more and be more practical at the same time. Since then, he has consulted hundreds and thousands of his constituents and his final works have been published amongst his peers and medical friends. Doctors deserve better and that’s why White Collar Uniforms invented its sporty designer lab coats.

All Medelita lab coats are hand sewn in the U.S. using 100 percent pre-shrunk cotton, representing a significant improvement over traditional polyester/cotton blend lab coats with limited breathability. The lab coats feature a modern tailored fit, with finished inside seams and advanced fabric technology for unparalleled soil, stain, fluid and wrinkle resistance. While each style of Medelita Men’s lab coat is designed for a specific use, they are all available in contemporary menswear sizes 36-52.

The 44-inch Osler men’s lab coat is the modern version of the classic, full-length lab coat. Featuring five total pockets, including a concealed pocket for a PDA or Smartphone, the Osler lab coat is named after Sir William Osler, MD, CM, a Canadian physician, pathologist, educator, bibliophile, historian, and author, who is described as the Father of Modern Medicine.

The 40-inch Laennec lab coat is Medelita’s mid-length lab coat featuring abundant upgrades to this versatile physician lab coat. With a tailored, distinguished look and technically innovative features, this new men’s lab coat was named for René-Théophile-Hyacinthe Laennec, a French physician who invented the stethoscope in 1816, while working at the Hôpital Necker and pioneered its use in diagnosing various chest conditions.

The 30-inch Fleming lab coat is a hip-length lab coat, often called a “consultation” or “student” length lab coat. The Fleming is named after Sir Alexander Fleming, a Scottish biologist and pharmacologist who published many articles on bacteriology, immunology and chemotherapy. He is best-known for receiving the Nobel Peace Prize for the discovery of penicillin, which he shared with two colleagues.

New 28-Inch Student-Length Lab Coat Answers Customer Demand For Shorter Style And Is Available For Pre-Order

Medelita®, maker of breakthrough medical apparel, today introduced the new Elizabeth B. lab coat to its collection of high performance women’s lab coats. Shorter than traditional coats, the Elizabeth B. is 28 inches in length and falls just below the hip on a woman of average height. The new, shorter-length lab coat is available for pre-order and will be available to purchase online November 6, 2009.

“The introduction of the Elizabeth B. lab coat is a significant milestone for us in that it answers countless customer requests, expressing the need for a lab coat with modern styling, sensible performance fabric features and long-lasting durability,” said Lara Manchik, founder, Medelita. “We chose to name the coat in honor of Elizabeth Blackwell, the very first female medical school graduate who paved the way for women in field of medicine. This appellation also honors customers of Medelita who continue to make significant contributions in their respective medical professions.”

At the turn of the 19th century, female doctors did not exist. But Elizabeth Blackwell changed that with her inspiring life’s work. Education played an important role for Blackwell, whose father moved the family from England to the U.S. Motivated by the desire to fill the unmet needs of women who preferred to consult with a female physician, Blackwell eventually sought a formal education during a time when medical schools simply did not allow women. Her application to the Geneva Medical College in New York was inadvertently accepted because students and the administration thought it was a practical joke.

Eventually, Blackwell’s persistence won her respect, admiration and the first U.S. medical degree awarded to a woman in 1849; however, she was barred from practicing in hospitals and set up a practice out of her own home. Among Blackwell’s many achievements was the establishment of women’s medical schools in the U.S. and in England. The educational institutions were the culmination of plans co-developed with Florence Nightengale, whom she met during the Civil War. Well into her later years, Blackwell continued to inspire and encourage women to study medicine. Today, women represent more than half of the students pursuing some form of medical education.

The Medelita Elizabeth B. lab coat is designed for those medical professionals who prefer technical advancements – not only in their clothing but also in their lifestyle. The fluid resistant lab coat is treated with Advanced Dual Action Teflon® fabric protector, which allows the fabric to repel and release stains, including blood, while maintaining a clean and crisp, polished appearance. Tailored for a feminine yet professional shape, the coats are sewn in the U.S. and feature the highest quality workmanship available in a medical uniform. Modern styling includes rounded lapels with complimentary pocket detailing, clean finishing of all seams, and a hidden inside pocket for transporting handheld devices and other useful medical tools.

Also called a consultation lab coat, the 28 inch lab coat is worn by students across numerous medical professions — medical school, dental school, physician assistant school — as well as by those medical professionals who simply prefer a hip length lab coat. Although the length is often a designation of a student, in some settings, the shorter coat is preferred or even required.

The new lab coat joins the Medelita collection of women’s lab coats, which range from the original, full-length Callia lab coat (38 in.), the Ellody (34 in.), to the Estie (38 in.) and Sophia (34 in.), all of which can be custom embroidered with name, title, and profession as preferred.

Medelita Celebrates National Nurse Practitioner Week

Medelita®, maker of breakthrough medical apparel, celebrates National Nurse Practitioner Week this November 8 through 14. Nurse practitioners (NPs) are advanced practice nurses who provide high-quality healthcare services similar to those of a doctor. They diagnose and treat a wide range of health problems, and even prescribe medication. This year, nurse practitioners are celebrated for providing “125,000 solutions to the primary care shortage.”

“Nurse practitioners play a critical role in our healthcare system, providing much needed care that encompasses disease diagnosis and treatment, health education and helping patients to make wise choices and to become better advocates of their own health,” said Lara Manchik, PA-C and founder, Medelita. “Medelita is proud to be a partner to NPs, who combine strengths f r o m nursing and medicine to provide a holistic approach to personalized patient care.”

Most nurse practitioners have advanced degrees, such as master’s degrees, and training beyond their registered nurse credentials. Many even have doctorates in their areas of specialty. Since 1965, NPs have been practicing in all types of settings including clinics, hospitals, private physician or nurse practitioner offices, schools, urgent cares, colleges and public health offices, to name a few.

Every day, nurse practitioners are making a difference in the lives of patients and they are advancing the role of women in the healthcare professions. Medelita honors NPs this week and throughout the year, through its “Celebrating Women in Healthcare” campaign showcasing the talents, devotion and accomplishments of women all across the nation, just like Secor. The women selected for “Celebrating Women in Healthcare” each receive a lab coat or scrubs of their choice and are featured on the Medelita web site. Nominations that include photos and detailed descriptions of professional and personal accomplishments can be emailed to celebrating.women@medelita.com.
