DESCRIPTION

UC San Diego Health is a Magnet designated organization, which is a prestigious recognition that applies to only 10% of all U.S. hospitals.

During clinic may need to perform intake duties including vital signs, medication reconciliation, EKG's, questionnaires, education, vaccinations or phlebotomy. Position requires compassion and patience specifically for this ACHD population along with initiative and ability to prioritize critical demands while working in a team environment.

Additional duties may be determined as the ACHD program expands.
