For a century, Children’s has been piloted by strong, forward-thinking leaders with an unwavering focus on our mission – to make life better for children. Their dedication and commitment have played a major role in making us who we are today: counted among the elite pediatric hospitals in the nation.
Children’s Medical Center of Dallas – our system’s main campus located in the heart of Dallas – is home to the only academic healthcare system in North Texas dedicated exclusively to the comprehensive care of children. We’ve been recognized among the top children’s hospitals in the country by U.S. News & World Report for six consecutive years, and were the first pediatric hospital in Dallas designated as a Level I Trauma Center.
Whether you’re an experienced professional, a college student or high school graduate, you’ll find a wealth of career opportunities with Children’s, and the level of career support and encouragement you’d expect of a healthcare leader. Since 1913, the mission of Children’s Medical Center has been to make life better for children. Now, it’s time to make life better for you.

Dallas is a leader in business and innovation, as well as a top visitor destination in Texas. The city continues to build on its strengths – friendly people, entrepreneurial spirit, flair for style and innovation, mild climate, accessibility and outstanding quality of life.
The ninth-largest city in the nation with 1.2 million residents is home to 18 Fortune 500 companies and has the third busiest airport in the world. Combined with Fort Worth, Dallas forms the fourth largest metropolitan area, offering diversity in its population and opportunities.
Dallas is on the international map with bold new architectural and civic projects, and a $15 billion city-wide revitalization. The city boasts the largest urban arts district in the United States, where residents enjoy the most sought-after homegrown restaurants, bars, shops and galleries, according to the New York Times.
The city is serious about sports and recreation – Dallas is the only city in the southwest that is home to five professional sports teams, including the Mavericks, Rangers and Cowboys. We take our personal fitness seriously, too, with a 3.5-mil run/bike trail in the heart of downtown, and more than 250 golf courses.
Within the Dallas-Fort Worth Metroplex, the DART public transportation system has a stop at the hospital for easy access for our residents and faculty.

- Application Details
I applied online. The process took 6+ months – interviewed at Children's Health.Interview Details
Once an available position opened up, I was called for an interview. The online submission process is tedious but once it is complete, you can apply to multiple positions and the information remains in their database. The online application consists of demographic info, your work history, clubs or organizations, certifications, criminal history, and online analytical, behavioral, and on occasion, algorithm questions. If you really want a position, I recommend looking up the Department Manager or recruiter of the specific field you are applying for and calling but only if you are qualified. If the manager knows that you are active and looking you are more likely to get a position. Emailing or faxing your resume to a recruiter's also works extremely well. the initial interview may be a phone interview if the manager/supervisor is busy. The secondary interview is in person with the hiring supervisor and usually a team lead or veteran. The questions are mostly behavioral. You will then receive a callback within 48 hours (unless the interviews are opened for a few days longer). After the callback and salary negotiations, you are required to bring in one form of Class A ID (Passport) or 2 forms of class B Identification. A urine drug test and background check is required.Interview Questions
