4 medical professions for which the US does not need to study for years
You are a doctor with a diploma received at home and you can not figure out where to start to work in the specialty in the United States? Or have you always dreamed of getting a medical profession, but you didn’t have enough money and time for college? In America, in addition to the standard for the whole world professions of a doctor and a nurse, there are still a large number of related specialties, for which it is often not necessary to spend years on training.
1.Electronic Health Records (electronic archive specialist)
This is a new profession in the labor market. Now all medical institutions should switch to electronic information storage system - in connection with this, both hospitals, insurance companies, and private medical offices need specialists who understand this. To teach this specialty is promised in Institute of Career Continuity. The school principal, Irina Kokurina, says that many colleges offer to master such a program, but there are significantly more expensive and there is no convenient schedule for working students.
“With us, you can study in the daytime or evening shift, and weekend training is also available. The program costs $ 2500. The background of a person does not matter at all - we take everyone, one requirement - that high school be completed. At the end of the course, students take a national exam and receive a certificate. They are looking for work in hospitals, medical offices, insurance companies - any places related to medicine, ”says the director.
According to her, in two-year colleges, where they offer to master this profession, the program is unreasonably extended. In their own school, the student himself decides with what intensity he can study. Anyone who does not work can attend day courses from Monday to Thursday. Working - in the evenings or on weekends.
They teach at the school in English, so when they enroll, students take a language proficiency test, but, according to Irina, they have a fairly good average level of English.
“The course necessarily includes preparation for interviews and advice on building a career. That is, we not only teach students, but also help them by explaining how to look for a job correctly, where to look for it, what to write on a resume, how to present yourself for an interview. This is an obligatory element of each of our programs, ”says Irina.
