Medical social workers provide psychosocial support to patients with chronic, acute or terminal illnesses, and their families. They may work within a specific community, specialize in helping a particular type of patient or serve the general population.

A variety of responsibilities are associated with medical social worker jobs, but the overall goal is to help patients and their families cope with an illness. Much of their help is delivered through education. Medical social workers help patients understand their condition and give them and their caregivers the knowledge they need to manage it.

Along with teaching patients about their illnesses, medical social workers also provide them with supportive resources, including comprehensive financial, emotional and legal aid, and medical assistance such as special education services or in-home help. But medical social workers don’t just provide referrals. They also help patients directly.  They may provide counseling services or psychotherapy to help patients deal with their illness in an emotionally safe way.  

To qualify for medical social worker positions, you will need a bachelor’s degree in social work, psychology, sociology or a related field, plus 400 hours of supervised work in the field. In order to participate in clinical work, you will need a master’s degree in social work.
