A UW alumna currently working at Meadowbrook Urgent Care in North Bend, WA is hoping to fill a medical assistant position at the clinic. The position can begin as a part-time job, but they need a full time (35-40 hrs/week) by the beginning of August.

They will train the candidate in basic procedures like drawing blood, placing IVs, taking X-rays. The candidate will have the opportunity to work with an ER doctor, an internist, and an ARNP.
