Choosing a Health Profession
Choosing a health profession that is a good fit for you means thinking about things like
- How long do you want to be in school?
- How strong are you in the sciences?
- Do you like to be hands-on with patients, or do you prefer to be more “behind the scenes”?
- How comfortable are you with the “messy” side of medicine (bodily fluids, invasive procedures, etc.)?
- Do you want to specialize or prefer the variety of a more generalized profession?
- Do you see yourself as the leader or having a more defined role on the healthcare team?
