Come spend a day, week or month learning about caring for patients with disabilities. As Mississippi shifts toward community-based healthcare for patients with intellectual and developmental disabilities (IDD), healthcare providers throughout the state will have a growing need for staff members who are experienced in this unique area of practice. DETECT can help you develop the kind of experience that will set you apart to Mississippi healthcare providers who are looking to meet the needs of people with IDD.
Your time with DETECT will involve important activities and range from hands-on patient care to learning about ancillary services such physical therapy, audiology, nursing care and other medically-related disciplines that encompass the spectrum of care. You’ll learn about the team approach to healthcare, as well as the system of community-based, integrated supports currently available to people with disabilities in Mississippi.
Most importantly, the knowledge you gain with DETECT will help you to become an integrated care and support provider for people with disabilities — making you a valued and sought-after member of Mississippi’s healthcare community.
