Exploring Health Careers

Finding Reliable Information

You know you want to help people achieve better health. Maybe you know exactly how you want to so that, and maybe you have not made a final determination yet. But even if you know, it is good to know what other possibilities are out there. Keep an open mind and find your calling. It may be different from what you expect.

More Ideas:

You want to help people with a specific aspect of their health. Consider:

You want to help people achieve maximum health and performance or overcome obstacles. Consider:

Next Steps

While reading about the basic of health careers is useful, it will not help determine how you fit into the environments they work in, and whether or not you enjoy the sorts of patients and situations they encounter.  It is important that you begin to job shadow, talk to health care providers, and work or volunteer in health care settings as soon as possible!  This will either inspire you to become a competitive applicant, or encourage you to look for alternative career and educational opportunities.
