more than a job image

It’s compassion in action.


Medical Assistant careers

At Akron Children’s Hospital, careers in healthcare feel different. Here, each interaction has a huge impact. That’s because the smallest patients depend on you. And although healing them is our primary focus, helping them laugh, cope and grow is our passion.

Here, it’s more than a job. It’s the support that’s all around. It’s helping to make a shot less scary, and a smile much bigger. It’s using our tuition reimbursement program to help realize your full potential and advance through your career with Akron Children’s.

Medical Assistants are extremely important and work in almost all departments at our hospital campuses, urgent care locations and in the public schools in our communities. MAs must be graduates of an accredited high school (or equivalent) and have, or be able to obtain, a Basic Life Support (BLS) certification. Preference will be given to those with a medical assistant certification or equivalent training and experience including paramedics, EMT or military.
