Allied Health Professional Career Opportunities

Consider a Career in Allied Health:
Pharmacist Assistants and Certified Medical Assistants

There is a wide range of significant, rewarding occupations in healthcare besides the traditional roles of doctors and nurses. Sixty percent of the nation’s total healthcare providers care for patients in a variety of careers under the allied health umbrella.

"Our workforce is comprised of more than 200 allied health staff members providing quality healthcare to our patients every day," FHN Talent Acquisition Specialist Carol Boeke says. "We are always on the lookout for qualified, experienced allied health professionals to join our team. The two areas of greatest need currently are pharmacy assistant and certified medical assistant."

Pharmacist assistants work closely with pharmacists in the hospital setting. Duties include medication dispensing and replacements for departments, performing IV admixing of medications, and assisting the pharmacist with entering medication charges and credits.

Certified medical assistants serve as key members of the healthcare team by updating and filing patient medical records, scheduling appointments, arranging for hospital admissions and laboratory services, taking medical histories, preparing patients for examination, providing instructions to patients about medication and special diets, and administering medications as directed by physicians.

Our staff members are always a priority at FHN, as they are the key to providing quality healthcare for those we serve. FHN's Total Rewards Philosophy represents a broad spectrum of plans and programs designed to reward, recognize, motivate, and develop our staff members throughout their careers. We invest in our staff by providing highly competitive compensation and benefits packages. We offer flexible schedules in a family-oriented work environment to help keep work and life in balance.
