What types of skills are necessary? What type of people do you work with? What is a typical day like? What is the salary? How much education is required for this career? What is the outlook for this career in the future? (Encourage students to refer to their interviews and consider aspects that were surprising, appealing, unappealing, or even disturbing. Often, these aspects of a career define the people most well suited for it. For example, emergency medical technicians might be drawn to their job not solely because they are good at biology or like helping people. They also might thrive in an intense environment where work has a feeling of urgency. Play The Real Game which shows how school ties into the workforce. 1

    • Urologist Public health Handout One (2) Students will choose one health profession to explore further. They will begin by researching general information using library and Internet resources. These Web sites may serve as good starting points: AMA: Medical Specialties AMA: National Medical Specialty Societies AMA: Careers in Allied Health www.Scois.net WWW.Kuder.com www.bls.gov As students research a profession, ask them to answer the following questions: • What is the primary goal of this profession? • What type of education or experience is required for this profession? • What about this profession is most interesting to you? 7
    • Interview Questions and Brainstorming (2) Students will interview a person in their selected healthcare field outside of class. This assignment may take several days: first students will have to identify a person and set up an interview. To do so, they could ask family and friends. They could also contact a local hospital and possibly set up a phone interview. (4) Brainstorm with students to develop a list of interview questions, which may include some of the following: Pass these interview questions out to students. • Describe the activities in a typical day in your job. • How many hours do you work in a typical week? • Tell me about your background, including education and experience. • What kind of people do you work with? • Why are you interested in this particular field? • What do you enjoy most about your job? • What skills—such as communication and problem solving—are most important in your field? Describe a situation in which you use these skills. • Describe a challenging situation you’ve had in your job. • Describe your relationship with your patients or clients. • If I were interested in pursuing your career, what classes do you think I should be taking in high school? What extracurricular activities should I pursue? • What other healthcare professionals do you work with? 8
    • (5) After students have completed an interview, have them write a one- or two-page summary of their findings. Their summary should include general information about the profession, personal quotes, and the characteristics necessary to work in that health field. Students will present on the person that they interviewed.Gather students’ summaries into a packet, and make a page titled Health Care Directory. Make enough copies for each student to read one.
