Exploring Careers in Healthcare and Medicine

While many high school and college students have been exposed to a small range of medical professions, it is typical that students in the Biomedical Science major expand their interests in diverse areas of medicine as they progress through the program.

There are a number of excellent website for exploring careers in healthcare, including:

http://www.explorehealthcareers.org/
http://nihlifeworks.org/feature/index.htm​
http://www.bls.gov/oco/

Websites are a great starting point for career exploration, but they are not a substitute for job shadowing and informational interviews.  Work with your contacts, including your advisor, to arrange for experiences that will allow you gain a realistic perspective of what various careers entail.​​​​
