Job Opportunity for Pre-Health Students

Ohio At Home is currently seeking to hire new Patient Care Assistants from OSU students working towards a career in healthcare or human services, as this line of work most directly relates to their goals and can serve as a great opportunity to gain hours of patient care experience and develop a network of colleagues and professional references.

Ohio At Home is a home healthcare agency that employs primarily Ohio State students and provides direct care services to individuals with developmental disabilities in central Ohio. Their agency supports clients ranging from children with autism to adults with paraplegia/quadriplegia.

The role of Patient Care Assistant involves tasks of daily living, behavioral and emotional support, community involvement and direct patient care. Key traits for a successful Patient Care Assistant are patience, kindness, teamwork, a passion for service, and an eagerness to learn.

Although Ohio At Home’s PCA staff is primarily comprised of pre-health students, all majors and areas of interest are invited to apply. Scheduling is based on the university semester system and can accommodate academic and extracurricular commitments. Past patient care experience is not required to apply, but those with experience are also encouraged.
