Join UChicago Medicine, as an Assistant Patient Care Manager on the Transplant Unit.
The University of Chicago Medicine is designated as a Level 1 Adult Trauma Center, meaning the hospital is prepared to handle the most seriously injured trauma patients 24 hours a day, seven days a week. UCM nurses truly work at the Forefront of Medicine -- providing the best and most advanced care available. Here, collaboration is the key to high-quality patient care and our nurses work side-by-side with internationally recognized physicians, scientists, and other healthcare professionals.
