Ethel Said:what kind of jobs are in the medical field but you dont work with blood?
We Answered:As has been mentioned most pharmacy personnel rarely if ever are exposed to blood or blood products. But to say never is not accurate. Clinical Pharmacists are often on units and may be exposed to blood. Radiology Personnel who think that a person coming in needing an X-Ray to find the bullet location, must think that trauma and gunshot patients don't bleed. The truth is, Radiology personnel are frequently exposed to blood if they are in a hospital environment.
If you work in a patient care occupation of any kind, there is some chance that you will be exposed to blood. Some areas have more exposure than others, but the chance is always there.
Health care administration positions, such as administrators, billing, coding, ethicist, etc usually do not get exposed to the clinical situations where they would have blood exposure.
But the plain and simple fact is that health care means taking care of people, and they have this habit of bleeding on occasion.
Cathy Said:What are the best jobs in the medical field for women who want to be mothers?
We Answered:Even in these rough times, there are some fields that actually see growth during a recession – and healthcare is one of them.
Demand for healthcare is relatively unaffected by recessions because people feel that healthcare is a necessity rather than an option. According to an article from the Bureau of Labor Statistics*, studies have shown from the 1980s that healthcare is one of the career fields that always sees a growth increase during recessions.
In fact, healthcare will see an increase in career opportunities, expected to grow 22% through 2016**. This means that there should be plenty of options for secure careers in the healthcare field. According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, 7 of the 20 fastest-growing occupations are in healthcare-related careers. That means, with the right medical training, individuals can find employment and stability, even during recessions.
One of the most secure careers is medical assisting. The Bureau of Labor Statistics states that medical assisting is expected to grow 35% through 2016. You can find Medical Assisting programs with MedTech College. The School offers personalized attention and hands-on training for this in-demand career. As a medical assistant, you can assist doctors and nurses in procedures, fill out forms, draw blood, perform numerous lab tests, and work in the front of medical offices.
Hope that helps!
Felix Said:What jobs in the medical field that don't require very good people skills?
Radiologist (not radiologic technician, they work with people all the time)
Medical Transcription (I had the same transcriptionist for 4 years and never met her)
Nora Said:What are some jobs in the medical field that DON'T require medical school?
We Answered:X-ray technician, physical therapy aide, dental hygienist or assistant, pharmacy assistant, dietitian, lab support worker, etc.
Look on a major hospital's website under job opportunities for other careers & they'll usually list the requirements and degree needed too.
