It's a French word that means Préposé aux Bénéficiaires (PAB) which is translated in English as a Personal Care Attendant.
Oh I see. I was trying to apply for an internship job in a hospital. That was how I came across the word.

Do you know what the job’s descriptions are by any chance?

It sure does. It increases your prospect of getting into a medical school.
Ok. My cousin has been working as a PAB for 6 months now and she's hoping she get's into U of Ottawa next year. I guess her experience in the job is gonna help her.
