MHC Healthcare is a cornerstone in the community dedicated to the training of future medical professionals. We have developed synergistic partnerships with all three Arizona Universities and many local healthcare technical schools. Exposure to the clinical operation is a critical component of the training for all medical providers and support staff. MHC Healthcare recognizes the value of the experience students gain in interacting one on one with MHC medical providers and engaging with the patients. The practical knowledge gained during the rotations and externships is required by many programs and offers students the realistic exposure to how a medical clinic operates and the clinical knowledge necessary to be successful in their specific career choices.
MHC Medical Providers are committed to sharing their experience and skills with those entering the field of medicine. As an organization, we collaborate with the local schools and assist in placing students in rotations and externships.
Marana Health Center has agreements in place with learning institutions to facilitate the placement of students for earning clinical hours.
Family Nurse Practitioners
A Nurse Practitioner (NP) is a Registered Nurse (RN) who has completed advanced education (a minimum of a master's degree) and training in the diagnosis and management of common medical conditions, including chronic illnesses. Nurse practitioners provide a broad range of healthcare services. They provide some of the same care provided by physicians and maintain close working relationships with physicians. An NP can serve as a patient's regular healthcare provider.
Nurse practitioners see patients of all ages. The core philosophy of the field is individualized care. Nurse practitioners focus on patients' conditions, as well as the effects of illness on the lives of the patients and their families. NPs make prevention, wellness, and patient education priorities.
Marana Health Center is a strong supporter of the advanced practitioners who are entering the field of medicine. The opportunity to experience shadowing with a practicing physician or another experienced nurse practitioner offers an excellent opportunity for learning.
Most Registered nurses can be found working in teams for health care facilities. General responsibilities of a registered nurse can include: Observing and recording patient medical history and symptoms, patient triage, immunization management, establishing a plan of care for patients or adding to an existing one then putting the plan into action, managing and assigning tasks to licensed practical nurses and nursing assistants, advising and providing emotional support for patients and their families. With Marana Health Center, RN students have the opportunity to engage with pediatricians, family practice and internal medicine providers. The rich experience contributes to the individual's caregiving skills and provides invaluable and unique patient experiences.
Medical assistants work side-by-side with nurses and others on the health care team, treating patients from newborns to senior citizens. Being a Medical Assistant allows you to experience a wide variety of medical office responsibilities including administrative, technical, scientific and human relations skills.
Clinical laboratory technicians help perform tests used to detect, diagnose, and treat disease. They may prepare specimens, operate automated analyzers, or perform manual tests under instructions from laboratory technologists or managers. Laboratory technicians may work in hospitals, though many are also found in physicians’ offices and in medical and diagnostic laboratories. Marana health Center’s Main Clinic offers externships for those seeking hands on experience to complete their scholastic experience.
