The Human Resources department had the pleasure of hosting nearly 20 McDaniel College undergraduate students interested in pursuing health care careers during a Career Day today at the hospital.
We enjoyed introducing students to the great career opportunities that our hospital has to offer, not only in the medical field, but also in the science and technology fields.
One highlight of the half-day event was the opportunity to ask questions of a panel consisting of physicians and hospital staff selected to speak based on the students’ interests.
The panel included a community pediatrician, a pediatric hospitalist, a Carroll Hospice grief counselor, an Emergency Department nurse, and a social worker and rehab service coordinator from our Behavioral Health department. Panelists shared why they entered their chosen field, the most rewarding and most difficult aspects of their job, and they also offered suggestions on how to get started in their field.
After the panel discussion, students toured several departments in the hospital, including the data center in the Information Systems department, the hospital lab and the diagnostic imaging area.
We hope this tour and future tours give students more insight to the variety of careers that can be found in a hospital setting. To learn more about the job opportunities available at our hospital, visit our Careers page.
