JOBS:

 

Anesthesiology : “Anesthesiology is that branch of medicine that is dedicated to total care of a patient undergoing surgery and the relief of pain”. This includes preparing patients for surgery, providing and maintaining life support during a surgery, and administering anesthetics or sedation. Like many other health care related jobs, being an anesthesiologist requires the ability to work under stress and communicate effectively. As an anesthesiologist, one is responsible for keeping patients alive and as comfortable as possible during surgery. Becoming an anesthesiologist requires a professional degree, a doctoral degree, and postdoctoral training.

Podiatrist : “Podiatry is a branch of medicine dedicated to feet”. Podiatrists are responsible for diagnosing disease, prescribing medication and other treatments, and advising their patients about their problems. They pretty much do what other doctors do, but specifically with feet. As such, their knowledge regarding feet is much higher than normal doctors. Becoming a podiatrist requires a professional degree, a doctoral degree, and postdoctoral training

Preventative Medicine Physician : The responsibility of a Preventative Medicine Physician is to “Apply knowledge of general preventive medicine and public health issues to promote health care to groups or individuals, and aid in the prevention or reduction of risk of disease, injury, disability, or death”. This is a field that all doctors/specialists use since pretty much all of them use preventative medicine with their patients. But a Preventative Medicine Physician is unique as this is all they do. They find groups and individuals who are at risk of injury or disease and they prevent it. Basically, they find people who are at risk of being unhealthy and do what they can to keep them healthy. They must also teach medical staff and medical providers. Again, the ability to communicate is a necessity. This job requires postdoctoral training and a doctoral degree.

So, as you can see, some of the fields the quiz recommended to me that I considered were, anesthesiology, podiatry, and preventative medicine. The first thing that stuck out to me about each of these jobs was the stress they come along with. It seems like most health science jobs are accompanied by a reasonable level of stress. People are putting their health in your hands of course, so it makes sense. Regardless, I feel like I could do well with these jobs. My parents both want me to pursue some type of health care job, and these ones pay pretty well too, which is nice. However, one thing I could see being a problem is the amount of education and training you need. I’m not saying I can’t go to school or anything, it just seems a little frustrating to have to do so much before being able to do what you really want to. Nonetheless, I like these careers, and will definitely consider them in the future. I was surprised by the recommendation of being a music therapist and even by podiatry. I was not aware of podiatry before this assignment so it was pretty funny to me at first. The music therapy however is still funny to me. I didn’t think my answers would make me seem compatible for that type of job, but I suppose the quiz thought otherwise.

 

The quizzes were pretty accurate in some senses. The answers don’t really give you much to work with on the first quiz. The test is trying to find specific jobs that it feels you would enjoy, which is difficult. Considering this, I think the test was accurate for what it was. The other test was spot on, but it was much more broad so it had more room for error with the results. I think the tests are great if you know yourself well. Some of the questions were hard to answer since they made me feel a little arrogant. Regardless, I was already thinking of doing somethign related to health science, and these quizes have done a bit to reassure my ideas.
