Pre-Health Opportunity

Dear UM Pre-Health Students,

We are an alumni family living in Ann Arbor caring for our medically complex 21-year-old son in our home. Direct care providers make a huge difference in our son’s life and the position offers an opportunity that is specifically helpful for Pre-Health students: direct patient care experience, documented hours, an opportunity to build bedside manner, and an important opportunity to receive a strong, personalized reference for medical school or graduate school, all while being paid! Medical schools (even U of M, Stanford, Harvard, etc!) are routinely impressed by our letters of recommendation and experiences caring for our son make great examples when interviewing with medical schools.

Our home is considered a long-term care facility, but we only have one patient – our very special son. Care providers for him are considered essential workers by Washtenaw County. All are masked and fully vaccinated. It is a safe and manageable way for a student or gap-year student to get the direct patient care experience needed for a future in health care. The students’ care allows us to keep our son healthy at home, as opposed to placing him in an institutional setting. Students can bolster their pre-health resumes, gain experience and get paid all while changing a young man’s life!

Have a great rest of your week!
