Hospital Social Work
At UMMC, we value Social Work as an integral part of our healing mission. Here, talented professionals work closely with doctors, nurses and the community to help patients - and their families - cope with the challenges and problems caused by illness or life changes. From conquering substance abuse, to adjusting to a disability following a traumatic accident and palliative care, they lend valuable assistance with a variety of issues, and link patients with community resources for assistance after discharge.
Our unique environment and broad case diversity offers Social Workers rare opportunities for exposure to the psychosocial aspects of illness or injury in areas such as shock trauma, transplantation or cancer treatment. And being a part of a large, academic center like UMMC helps you to expand your skills and knowledge, exposing you to a wealth of information from some of the leaders in their respective fields, and fueling your continual growth.
