Bastyr University is now hiring a full time “In-Person” Patient Services Representative for our Clinic located in Wallingford. We are seeking friendly, team oriented and hardworking individuals as the first line of contact in our medical clinic front office.
Diversity Equity Inclusion (DEI) Academic Commitment: Bastyr University believes that inclusive diversity is essential for achieving academic excellence and creating a profoundly enriching university experience. Our faculty and staff are committed to achieving our mission by educating students to be future leaders that bring the natural health arts and sciences to people from all backgrounds. Promoting an educational environment that allows students, faculty and staff to develop their talents while experiencing a sense of community, we expect campus members to engage in respectful communication, behaviors and thoughtful self-reflection, increase their understanding of cultures and empower people who are disenfranchised, marginalized or oppressed. In so doing, the University pledges to prepare our students (and support faculty and staff) to recognize and appropriately respond to health inequities that affect multiple communities. This involves infusing DEI knowledge, skills, and practices in all academic programs, clinical training and patient services. In all, Bastyr University is dedicated to the welfare of our students and patients as well as to promoting equal opportunity and access in education and health care.
In alignment with Bastyr’s DEI commitment, applications from members of underrepresented groups are encouraged.
