Mission and Vision

CapYear is dedicated to forging the future of healthcare.

We strive to open doors to clinical job opportunities for aspiring physicians and physician assistants.

Our mission is two-fold: to provide future clinicians with training, experience, and the opportunities they need to excel in their careers, and to empower healthcare employers with a pool of motivated employees who are committed to exceptional patient care.

Our Vision

At CapYear, we recognize the potential of pre-medical and pre-physician assistant candidates to deliver outstanding patient care. We are committed to developing robust clinical training, and ensuring access to job opportunities by fostering strong partnerships with healthcare employers. This dual approach enables future clinicians to get the valuable experience they need, while patients receive the high-quality care they deserve.

Our Core Values

What is


CapYear is where emerging medical professionals build clinical skills, get certified, and find patient-facing jobs, and where healthcare employers find motivated candidates to fill entry-level clinical positions. We bridge the gap between aspiring doctors, PAs, and healthcare employers.
