These careers are characterized by the educational requirements and the salary offered by the profession. Several examples of medical careers include: Neurologists, Pediatricians, Orthopedic surgeons, Orthodontists, Physicians, Pathologists, etc.
  3. 3. The educational requirements vary from simple vocational degrees to specialized medical degrees. A prospective medical student should begin to consider the medical careers that would benefit them. Many of the careers require an immense amount of dedication and time.
  4. 4.  A medical degree or (M.D) is obtained through attending a university for four or more years and then completing a rigorous application process in order to become admitted into what is known as medical school, there the student would begin an academic program in which he/she will explore the basic aspects associated with their interests. This phase consume two years of the students time. The next two or more years consist of clinical and laboratory training. If the student wishes to proceed into specialization he/she will have to enter a residency program which will consume 3-10 more years of an individual’s time based upon their specialization. Examples of such careers are: Allopathic Physicians, Specialized Physicians, Surgeons, Anesthesiologists, Chiropractors, Psychologists, Neurologists, etc.
  5. 5.  Bachelors and Under:  These careers require 2-4 years or less of training or education:  Medical Assistant  Health Information Manager  Dental Assistant  Physical Therapist Assistant  Registered Nurses  Master’s Degree:  These careers require 5-7 years of training and education:  Health Administrator  Social Worker  Epidemiologist  Genetic Counselor  Medical Library Technicians  Speech-Language Pathologist

  7. 7.  Medical specialties can be defined as a branch of medical science that consists of several careers. Medical specialties usually require multiple years of residency and internship after the completion of Medical School. Internship and Residency’s time span depends upon the specialization of the occupation. Medical specialties are organized into the following categories: Surgical, Medical (diagnosis and non-surgical treatment), and Diagnostic specialties.
  8. 8.  Urologists  Neurologists  Cardiologists  Surgeons (Orthopedic, Cosmetic, etc.)  Pediatricians  Radiologists  Dermatologists  Gynecologists  Oncologists  Gastroenterologists  Otolaryngologists
  9. 9.  Only individuals that are entitled a medical license either by a government approved professional association or a government agency. Medical School graduates must receive a license before he/she can be deemed a physician in legal terms. Medical graduates are not automatically granted a medical license, they must participate in a process (which spans from 3 to 6 months) that requires thorough examination by the medical board. The medical license is referred to as a legal documentation that allows an individual to practice medicine within a certain geographical region.
  10. 10. As depicted in the illustration many of the applicants did not matriculate/ were accepted into a medicinal institution due to the competitive aspect of the application process which prompts academic excellence in the applicants.
