Perfect Healthcare Jobs For Those Who Want To Heal The World!

By

appleIt’s pretty natural for people to hate their jobs and wish that they could do something else. After all, very few kids grow up dreaming about working in an office, putting numbers into a computer every day. But that leads a lot of people to the next question: what can you do instead? After all, it’s one thing to decide that you don’t want to work at your current job and to go and do something else instead, but what comes next? If you’re not careful, you could just end up bouncing from unsatisfying job to unsatisfying job without ever really finding anything that you enjoy. If you want to break that cycle, then one of the best things to do is to find a job that you find really satisfying.

What you find satisfying in a job will be very personal, but a lot of people find the fact that they aren’t doing anything to improve the world around them to be one of the most frustrating things about their current jobs. If you feel that way then why not look into the kind of industry that allows you to help people more directly than just about any other: medicine. The medical industry is filled with different careers for people of all skill types and levels of qualifications, but the one thing that they all have in common is that you would be spending your time actually helping people and improving the world around you. With that in mind, here are some medical careers that you might want to consider.

Doctor

Let’s get the obvious one out of the way first, shall we? Plenty of kids grow up saying that they want to be a doctor and why wouldn’t they? You get to help people, diagnose and treat illnesses, develop new treatments and generally make the world a better place. Of course, the most common reason why a lot of people tend to grow out of that dream is that it’s one of the most difficult career paths to pursue. If being a doctor is something that you can truly imagine yourself doing then you need to be willing to put in years of hard work before that can even be close to a reality. Getting a medical degree can often take you the better part of a decade including placements, specializations, and a whole lot of hard work. Not only that but the first few years of being a qualified doctor are going to involve a lot less pay than you might expect combined with some seriously grueling hours. If you’re planning on becoming a doctor because of the promise of a fat paycheck, then you’re in it for the wrong reasons. Instead, make sure that you’re pursuing it for the love of helping other. Otherwise, the obstacles that you face are going to tough to get over.

Nurse

After a doctor, the most common career that people imagine in the medical industry is that of a nurse. Nurses are sort of the unsung heroes of the medical industry in a lot of ways. Sure, doctors are the ones who get all of the recognition, thanks, not to mention the money, but without nurses, most hospitals would completely grind to a halt and fall apart completely. Nurses are often the ones running around behind the scenes treating patients directly. Where a doctor might be the one pulling the strings and setting up the treatment options for patients, nurses are the ones who are on the ground actually making that happen. Once again being a nurse will require a pretty serious amount of study on your part, though not quite as much as becoming a doctor. You can find more information on the kinds of things that you need to become a nurse, not to mention the earning potential, from this source: https://www.staffnurse.com/category/nursing. Again, this is a career that you need to embrace for the love of it. Being a nurse can often be an incredibly difficult, thankless job. But when you’re faced with patients who you have been directly involved with improving their quality of life, you’re likely to find that it’s all worth it in the end.  

Home care aide

A home care aide is one of those medical jobs that is incredibly important and often highly fulfilling, but you don’t carry quite the same level of glamor as being a doctor or a nurse which means that you tend not to hear about it quite as much as those careers. A home care aide is someone who works with elderly or disabled people who are unable to take care of themselves on a day-to-day level in their homes. This means that your duties will include everything from cooking meals and making beds, to general household maintenance, to assisting with physical therapy and advising families on how to best deal with an elderly relative or someone with disabilities. This is an incredibly appealing position for a lot of people because you generally don’t need nearly the level of qualifications and training required to become a doctor or a nurse, meaning that it’s a much better entry level career for many people. Not only that but, unlike those careers, you have the chance to become much more closely connected to the people in your care because you’ll find yourself spending every day with them on a pretty consistent basis, building a strong relationship with them over time.

Medical assistant

Just because doctors and nurses are the ones interacting directly with patients doesn’t mean that they’re the only people who keep a hospital functioning properly. A hospital is a vast, complex system and without the proper administrative support, the whole thing could easily fall apart. Because of that medical assistants are some of the most important, if often unrecognized, people within a hospital setting. As a medical assistant, you’ll generally be tasked with a lot of administrative duties such as answering the phone, directing patients to the correct wards, updating medical records, and keeping the hospital’s books up to date. However, that doesn’t mean that you’ll miss out on the one-to-one interaction with patients that other medical professionals get. You’ll often be tasked with things like taking a patient’s blood pressure, assisting during minor procedures and preparing patients for exams. Once again this is a great entry level position for those who want to be a part of the system that keeps a hospital running without having to worry about going through a decade of degree level education just to get their foot in the door.

Paramedic

If you’re the kind of person who does well under pressure and thrives in an incredibly fast paced work environment then being a paramedic is the career for you. As a paramedic, your role will mostly be to provide on the spot treatment, first aid, and revivals to people who have suffered some kind of accident or sudden illness. After that, it’s your job to get them to the nearest hospital as quickly and safely as possible. Now, there is a lot of training involved in becoming a paramedic, but a lot of it is based around direct on the job training rather than education. Because of this, it’s a good job for those without degrees, but that doesn’t mean that it’s an easy job by any means. In reality, it’s one of the hardest, most high-pressure careers that anyone can pursue. There is a huge amount of pressure on you to help people in emergency situations, and it’s important that you’re sure that that’s something that you can handle before pursuing a career as a paramedic.
