Description

Imagine that you are a college student interested in medicine, helping others, and the health-care industry in general, but you are confused about your course of study. You aren't sure what direction you should take or what career you might be interested in pursuing after you get your degree. You don't even know what your options are or how they match your interests. Do you want to be a dentist? A chiropractor? A dietitian? A nurse? An optometrist? Within the health care industry there is a wide variety of majors and specializations, each with their own focused program of study and each leading to a different career path.

Most colleges and universities offer a wide range of majors, specializations, and courses of study within the general field of health care, and the truth is that a degree in medicine and a degree in medical technology will not only lead to two very different sets of career options, but to different academic programs and degrees as well. Such a decision can even affect what kind of school a student chooses to attend, from a 2-year technical school to an 8-year medical school. Major Choices in Health Care can guide those students to choose the major or specialization that is right for them, as well as get them thinking about the kinds of careers they want to pursue. This entry into the Major Choices series helps students match their interests to the following majors/career paths:

  • Medical Technology
  • Optometry
  • Rehabilitation/Therapy
  • Nursing
  • Dentistry
  • Medicine
  • Mental and Social Health Services
  • Veterinary Medicine

From there, students use their assessment scores to explore the majors and specializations that best match their interests and the kinds of careers those majors lead to.
