Carilion’s roots go back more than a century, when dedicated citizens came together to build a hospital. And in every moment since, we’ve worked to evolve further, fundamentally changing the way we collaborate and care.

They said we were too small. Too far. Too rural. They said we couldn’t be an innovator or a leading voice in health care. They said we’d never be one of the best. They don’t say that anymore.

Create Your Career Path

In our workplace, we're devoted to the success of our employees. Some begin their career here in one of our many positions that require no prior experience. Other team members join the Carilon path as an experienced professional. No matter where you are in your career, we will help you continue to learn, grow and share your knowledge with others.

We are in the process of creating an interactive tool to help you visualize a career path. For example, you can look at career options based on categories such as, Administration/Management, Clinical, Non-nursing, Emergency Medicine, Environmental Services, Finance, Food Service, Maintenance, Nursing, Therapy and more. Or search based on your current level of education and certifications. Once you've chosen your interests, our tool will show you other positions you could potentially advance to.

We look forward to helping you map out a career with Carilion Clinic.  Please check back soon to utilize the tool and learn more about building your tomorrow with us. 

"Carilion helped grow my career through continued learning, and not just with skill improvement and job knowledge, but also through life lessons. I have met quite a few great people and been offered many helping hands along the way in this organization. The greatest benefit to working here is knowing somehow, some way, you always have a way to help and put a smile on someone's face."
