  6. 6. What to study? Exploring My Options for future careers Career Options by Programs of Study The discipline you study doesn't determine what you will do after graduation. Your degree is just one of the many important assets you bring to your future career. Taking a look at some potential career paths for your program of study can be helpful for giving you ideas that you may not have considered otherwise. Occupational Clusters refers to groupings of careers that are similar based on required skills, knowledge, duties, education and working environments. Career exploration is often facilitated by identifying occupational clusters of interest. Making Connections with others is an important aspects of your career and future post secondary development Learning About Myself is the most important element in finding a program and future career that’s right for you.

  7. 7. So you want to become a Doctor? Students in their last year of high school find themselves asking that big question “What do I want to do/be and where do I study it”. The traditional professions are sought out but once entering university the narrow door becomes very wide. A student should choose a program based on their academic goals and career plans. If plans change, it is easy to change from one program to another. Programs at university with the pre-req courses for Medical School: Biology Chemistry Kinesiology and Health Science (BA or BSc) Psychology (BA or BSc) Bachelor of Arts programs can also be an option! Admission: Strong Math/Science from grade 12, including ENG4U. All science students take common first- and sometimes second-year courses. It is in the third and fourth years that the programs begin to differentiate. Applications to medical schools are after 3rd yr of university 7
  8. 8. Occupational Clusters Careers in Medicine & Health The medical and health sector may be thought of as those careers that are dedicated to illness prevention and health maintenance. Occupational Clusters within this this sector may include: • • • • • • • Counseling and Mental Health Medicine (Doctor, Nurses, Pharmacists, Dietician, Medical Technicians) Rehabilitation Health Management and Administration Teaching Research Post degree – Masters Research may focus on the study of factors that contribute to a healthy lifestyle, or examine the efficacy of treatment options for optimal care. Occupations in the medical and health sector may be of interest to individuals who desire to work with people, those concerned with maintaining their physical fitness and wellness, those dedicated to assisting others in need, those curious about medical and scientific advancements, and those who may wish to manage and/or support professionals committed to medical care 8
