Are you a student in the medical field seeking to accrue active, authoritative patient care hours during your gap year — in a job that aligns with your personal and professional goals?
If so, working as a direct care professional (DCP) at ACR Homes may offer the perfect win-win solution. Not only can you accrue the key working hours needed to apply to a PA or similar medical training program, but you’ll be paid for your time, hard work and expertise while gaining real-world experience and learning important new skills.
That puts ACR’s program head and shoulders above less-personalized unpaid internships that require students to hold down second jobs to stay afloat financially.
“The skills I learned at ACR really gave me an advantage over many classmates in medical school. I gained skills in teamwork, creative problem solving, dealing with stress and resilience.”
- Cory, a former ACR DCP.
“I mostly worked overnight shifts because I felt it made the most sense to ‘kill two birds with one stone’ and get paid to do my homework. I feel truly blessed to have stumbled across the ACR Homes booth during my undergrad, not knowing how important this job would become to me.”
- a psychology student who spent a gap year at ACR Homes prior to graduate school.
This Tuesday, July 11th, from 7-8pm, we're hosting current Pre-PA (Hannah, Mayo Clinic; Kalianna, Brenau University; Shannon, Augsburg) and Pre-med (Priya, UMN-TC) students who took a gap year between college graduation and starting PA and med school!
This is for all current employees AND as a benefit of being an ACR employee, if you have a friend who is pursuing grad school and planning to take a gap year, they can also join using this link!
For those who attend we will also be doing a drawing for either a Pre-PA workbook from Savanna Perry, PA-C or some MCAT study tools!
Check out their bios to learn a little more about them! Hope to see you there!
