Consider Your Healthcare-Related Interests

Home  |  Explore  |  Learn  |  Consider  |   Understand  |  Experience

It is important to identify/organize your interests, and to reflect on how your interests align with the majors and careers you are exploring. The following are some ways to help you clarify your interests:

Also, spend some time reflecting…

  • How did you first become interested in the healthcare field?
  • Do you enjoy spending time in hospital settings?
  • What aspect of healthcare interests you the most? The least?
  • Are you interested in working directly with patients, or are you open to more indirect ways of helping (researching public health issues, analyzing samples in a lab, writing articles about medical advancement, directing fundraising campaigns for a health-related non-profit organization, etc.)?
