Careers in Health Care

Editorial Reviews

School Library Journal - School Library Journal
Gr 9 Up-- A typical occupation orientation text, this volume looks at groups of medical jobs including primary-care physicians, surgical and medical specialists, nursing, and dentistry, as well as several allied health careers. The presentation focuses on a wide variety of jobs within each group, giving information about length and type of training and types of tasks performed. Many medical terms are used with parenthetical explanations. A part of a proposed 80-volume series, this title is similar in scope to Opportunities in Health and Medical Careers (VGM, 1983), but is more effective in its approach with less information in outline form. Students seeking information about a wide variety of medical careers will be well served, as will those needing report material. --Lois McCulley, Wichita Falls High School, TX
