Pediatric Associates was founded in Hollywood, FL in 1955. The same clinician-led, evidence-based, medical home passion is a unifying driver for those who join Pediatric Associates Family of Companies.  The Pediatric Associates Family of Companies is a growing team of Pediatricians and Pediatric Care Teammates who are excited to be part of the first nationwide Pediatric Primary Care Medical Home. We further our uniqueness by ensuring the clinician voice is leading our medical home innovations.

Pediatric Associates Family of Companies partners with schools throughout the US to help Medical Assistants complete their required externship hours. Students will be exposed to the Pediatric world where they gain knowledge regarding offices and PA procedures.

Our externship opportunities are considered a working interview where they are graded by their school and by PA Leaders who will then determine if they will be a good fit for PA long term. Nine out of ten externs are offered employment with PA!

During the externship, students shadow a care team member while performing the following patient care duties:

Prepare exam rooms for patient examinations and observations
Observe lab tests and specimen collection
Shadow employees as they take vitals: measure and record vitals, collecting medical history

To know if you qualify for this program, please connect with your school. If you want to check your school’s affiliation with PA, feel free to have your counselor reach out to our Talent Acquisition Team.

We currently have affiliation agreements with the following schools in the Tampa/St. Petersburg region:  Florida Career College, Concorde Career College, Hillsborough Community College, and Southern Technical College.  If you are a Medical Assistant student in need of externship hours from one of these schools, we'd like to hear from you! 

If your school isn't listed above, but you still desire to be a part of our team, we still encourage you to apply, so that we can begin the process of completing an affiliation agreement with your school.  Be that trailblazer, and set yourself and your fellow alumni up for success with the largest pediatrics organization in the United States.

Bilingual (English/Spanish) students are encouraged to apply!

Candidates applying to extern positions must consent to a background check and drug screening prior to placement at one of our clinics.
