MAKO University

MAKO University

Our team members are the heart of MAKO Medical.  We want them to have purpose in their career, not just a job.  That’s why we created “MAKO U” (University). The employee resource effort provides our colleagues with free opportunities to grow professionally.

We launched MAKO U in August 2022 with an accredited phlebotomy program.  The nine-week program includes in-person and virtual training.  So far, 20 MAKO team members have graduated. Hear from some of our graduates below.

MAKO’s COO Josh Arant said he wants to support a strong, supportive culture at MAKO so people want to work here.

“MAKO U allows people who begin working at MAKO to gain new skills that make them more valuable not only at MAKO but further in their career,” MAKO COO Josh Arant said.

In particular, the phlebotomy program can create a pipeline of phlebotomists across the country to service MAKO’s growing number of clients.

MAKO U offers various training courses, workshops, and certification programs – at no cost – all aimed at equipping team members with the necessary skills to excel in their roles and advance to new heights.
