The mission of AIDS Services of Austin is to enhance the health and well-being of the community and people affected by HIV and AIDS. For more than 27 years, ASA has provided a continuum of services to the greater Central Texas area.

Are you a master's level social worker that is looking for something outside of the traditional case management setting?  Join the ASA family and make an impact on the lives of those living with HIV/AIDS. 

 

As an ASA Medical Social Worker you will coordinate services in our oral health and medical clinics. With compassion you will guide patients through a variety of short term task oriented case management activities including: navigation of medical appointments, medication adherence and management, substance use and mental health symptom management, medical comorbidity navigation, health education, transportation, and public benefits assistance. Your highly valuable knowledge is an incredible educational asset that will help your patients feel empowered in managing their HIV and co-morbid symptoms. You will have the opportunity to work with a diverse population, acting as part of a multidisciplinary clinic team as dictated by client acuity.

 

Ideal Candidate Profile:

 

You're a mover and a shaker: Effortlessly, you move from appointments, to calls, to notes, to meetings, and back again. You thrive on a full schedule with lots of variety, which will include clinic hours, mobile intakes, and office time.

 

You're 'Type A' organized: You're on top of your notes, and have extra time at the end of the day to review your client files!

 

You're patient: Problem solving and mentoring come easily to you.  You enjoy being of service.  When you help someone to a personal breakthrough it makes all the struggles worthwhile!

 

You're mission driven - You're looking for a job that makes a difference. At ASA you will be an integral part in our community to help our clients build healthier futures and reduce stigma for people affected by HIV/AIDS.
