Best Medical Careers

Nursing is the single largest occupation in the medical industry. With more than 2 million nurses
employed in the United States alone, there is great demand for trained and registered nurses the
world over. To become a nurse, you can get a diploma or an associate degree in an accredited
nursing college.

Another medical occupation in demand is that of medical assistants. Medical assistants are
professionals who work under the indirect supervision of nurses and doctors, and help with
clinical and administrative tasks. They are trained in applying procedural tests such as blood test,
ECG, blood pressure test etc. In most countries, medical assistants too are registered much like
nurses and doctors. In the US, medical assistants are registered by appearing for and passing an
exam by the American Association of Medical Assistants.

Becoming a doctor of medicine is of course the gold standard of the medical profession. Doctor
of Medicine, or Bachelor of Medicine, two of its technical names known throughout most of the
world, is acquired after about 5-7 years of graduate and post-graduate study. In the United States,
there are about 17,000 seats for students in a medical school. With about 47,000 students
appearing for these seats after high school, there is a lot of competition getting into a medical
school.

Finding a Medical Job

One of the largest employers of health care staff are organizations such as the National Health
Care of Britain. With such government funded health care organizations, there are some very
standard requirements as well as remunerations that can be expected from working for them.

requirements, should help you a lot in getting a medical job of your choice.
