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.
This is a truly unique opportunity for a pre-nursing or pre-med student to have hands-on experience in a medical setting, while earning a bit of money. They are a small group of health care providers serving people on the Eastside/North Bend.
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.
SOC 401 Incarcerating America: Impacts of Mass Incarceration on Individual and Community Health
Full-term 5cr, T/Th 1:30-3:50, SWS 230
The goal of this course is to examine the impact of incarceration on the health of prisoners and individuals post-release as well as their families, partners, children, and communities. This course will extend beyond traditional classroom-based learning by touring the healthcare facilities of a prison to talk with medical- and mental health personnel. We will also invite a number of guest speakers, including former prisoners who will discuss their experiences behind bars and their reintegration in society upon their release.
Students can contact Marie Neumann via email (firstname.lastname@example.org) if they’d like more information.
