Medical professions are varied and diverse. People tend to think of doctors and nurses only when they think of medical professionals, but there are many other professionals who help make the medical world go around. Two popular medical careers are an Anesthesia assistant and a pharmacy professional.

Anesthesia Assistant Career

Anesthesia Assistant degree and certification programs vary, depending upon individual school but most programs will combine classroom, lab work, and hands-on clinical learning. Coursework will cover terminology, anatomy, and pulmonary physiology. Before applying to any program, it is important that students understand the requirements for completed a degree program. Many require math and science coursework, and prospective students should know what those prerequisites are and whether or not they meet them.

Career in Pharmacy

A pharmacist dispenses the prescriptions that doctors have prescribed to their patients. They are also required to inform patients of relevant information about the prescribed medications and help them to understand all dosing instructions. Pharmacists have a big responsibility when it comes to patient care. Incorrect dosages could lead to serious health problems in patients. Someone who is people oriented and interested in working in the medical field without sitting through years and years of education might be a good fit for this career. Additionally, it helps to have an interest in and be good at math and science

Pharmacy programs are offered at colleges and universities across the country, and each one has different admissions and graduation requirements. It is important for students to consider their options because not all programs are the same. Some programs take longer than others to complete. Some require more clinical work than others. Still others have stringent prerequisites. Prospective students should always research a school's admissions requirements before attempting to enroll in a pharmacy program. Price is another consideration when comparing programs, because pharmacy tuition can vary greatly depending on the school and the program.

People choose medical professions for a variety of reasons. Some like to help people, others like the science aspect of the job. No matter what brings someone into the medical profession, the personal rewards can often be the greatest aspect of the job.
