Whether it involves working in a senior care facility, serving as an assisted living aide or taking care of children, there are few careers more rewarding than that of care provider. Care providers offer people in need assistance, companionship and, sometimes most importantly, hope. Responsibilities often include meal preparation, scheduling medical appointments, housekeeping, assisting with physical therapy, and running daily errands. In order to have a successful career as a care provider, you must be patient, readily adaptable to any situation, and genuinely want to help others.
Students enrolled in the Associates Degree Program in Medical Assisting at the Monroe College School of Allied Health are taught by active and retired care provider supervisors, managers, and directors. We believe in providing students with career-oriented academics and strong real-world experience. Monroe students intern and work at nursing homes, daycare centers and hospices in and around the New York area.
