Pikeville Medical Center (PMC) is looking for the next group of students interested in becoming Patient Care Technicians, an excellent position for anyone wishing to begin their career in healthcare.

A Patient Care Technician (PCT) is an important part of the overall patient care team at PMC who works under the supervision of a licensed nurse or practitioner. PCTS work directly with patients and address a wide range of individual patient needs. Patient Care Technicians at PMC are trained in phlebotomy, EKG technology and nurse aid skills, making their position extremely valuable.

“Students will apply for the position of Patient Care Tech Student. Once hired, they will begin four weeks of classes at Big Sandy Community and Technical College before wrapping up with six weeks of clinical training and skills checkoffs,” explained PMC Director of Educational Program Development Stacie Taylor. “This program is part of the Big Sandy TRAINS program, a collaborative effort between the college and Pikeville Medical Center and is a great way for anyone 18 and older to enter the medical field.”

Once training has been completed, successful students will transition to a permanent Patient Care Tech position. Spaces are limited for the next PCT class and the deadline to apply is quickly approaching.
