We here at United Medevac Solutions are fortunate to work with many types of healthcare facilities and, therefore, many types of healthcare workers. When you think of healthcare, who are the first types of personnel that you think of? Doctors? Nurses? But, there are so many more types of healthcare careers that are helping patients feel better every day. Let’s take a look at some of them.
Types of Healthcare Careers
Of course, there are too many healthcare career choices to list all of them here. But, we want to give you an idea of some of the careers that patients need (and facilities are staffing) so that you can begin to match your interests with your healthcare career path.
For example, have you considered Respiratory Therapy? It is an exciting field with many areas for advancement and specialization. You give patients the care they need as well as working with physicians to complete a treatment plan.
Do you enjoy eating healthy and creating healthy meal plans? Have you considered a career as a Dietician or Nutritionist? These clinicians are vital in helping the patient manage a disease, create and maintain a healthy lifestyle, reach healthy goals, and more.
Occupational Therapists have fascinating jobs. They help their patients recover and regain function with their daily activities. For example, after surgery, an OT may help the patient practice sitting on a shower bench, make a small meal by themselves, etc.
Would you rather be a first responder? EMTs and Paramedics must be prepared to quickly respond to patients who need critical care. Often these healthcare workers are working in less than perfect conditions (out in the field, moving ambulance, etc). However, if this is your calling, it can absolutely be the most rewarding career.
And, care doesn’t stop after the patient goes home. Home Health Aides are often needed after a patient leaves a facility. A career in home health can be very rewarding. Workers in this field often get to know their patients and their families well. They help those with a chronic illness, disabilities, and many times – the elderly.
These are just a few examples of the amazing careers available in healthcare today. We invite you to view a more extensive list from the Bureau of Labor Statistics. There are so many to choose from. We know you will find your perfect healthcare career!
