Getting a Medical Social Worker job.

How did you get your start doing Medical Social Worker work, and what career moves did you make to get to your current position?

Do you need a particular educational background?

I have always worked in the school setting, however, I got into the medical SW through persuing my MSW and internships. We were required to have at least 1 internship of a year in a field we never worked in. At the time I didn't like the idea, However, NOW..It opens up more oportunities in which you can draw upon that experience. Hope I answered your question.

Yes, Jeter02,
I really feel like I missed out, by not working in a medical setting in the 2nd year of my internship during grad school. Any advice for having attained MSW and MSW level licensure and trying to get medical experience? Positions I see require 1-2 years of medical experience. I must start someplace. This Catch-22 is impossible!
