A Healthy Start in Healthcare: The First Step Toward Your Career as a Health Professional

A Healthy Start in Healthcare: The First Step Toward Your Career as a Health Professional

Why Studying Anatomy and Physiology May Be Right For You Discover Your Many Career Possibilities

Do you see yourself as someone who is there for others? Are you often raising your hand to help or volunteer your time?

Professionals who work in the healthcare industry often say they found their career path because they saw an opportunity to make a difference. By working in medicine and wellness, they found an outlet for their desire to improve the lives of others.

But even if healthcare professionals approached their jobs based on a similar desire, they didn’t necessarily end up in the same place.

In the healthcare industry, there are many career possibilities, from nurse to paramedic, nutritionist to therapist, researcher to orthodontist. There’s also a great need: healthcare professions are among the most in-demand jobs for 2019, according to a recent report from Career Cast.

A Foundation for a Healthcare Career
Healthcare professionals are often some of the most respected workers. They are valued for their compassion, technical skills, intensive training, and vast knowledge.

The study of anatomy and physiology can establish the foundation of an important career in the healthcare industry. In understanding the structure of the body and how body parts function, students of anatomy and physiology gain a deep understanding of the human body. Even if your goal is not to become a doctor, this is a key lesson that will help you care for others.

What Will Anatomy and Physiology Teach You?
Corexcel’s fully accredited, self-paced Online Anatomy and Physiology course allows you to experience the immersive and interactive lessons necessary so you truly understand the workings of the human body.

Master key concepts, like the nervous system and cell structure,  thanks to full-color art, animations, audio, and video. Additionally, multiple exercises, games, quizzes and tests help reinforce learning and test your growing knowledge of anatomy and physiology as you progress.

The course is perfect for non-medical professionals who want to learn anatomy and physiology to pursue a field in the healthcare or pharmaceutical industries. In other words, this could be your pathway to a new career.

Hiring the Wrong Candidates Costs You Time and Money

Here’s How to Hire Right

You need to fill that job, and you need to fill it now. You interview a candidate, have a terrific conversation, and hire them. A few months later, your new employee isn’t up to snuff. Sound familiar?

When you have an open position, it’s tempting to cut corners and quickly fill the spot. However, hiring mistakes cost your organization time, money, and emotions. In the long run, it pays to take the steps necessary to hire right.

A Hiring Solution

To add objectivity to your hiring process, use a hiring assessment. We recommend PXT SelectTM, a powerful online tool. PXT Select helps you hire the best candidates, onboard them effectively, and develop them over time.

The first step is for a candidate to take an assessment that looks at their behavioral traits, thinking style, and interests. Then reports are generated: 1) providing insight on the candidate and 2) letting you compare the candidate against job-specific models. You can quickly see if the candidate’s characteristics align with the ideal person for the job. There is even a report that suggests personalized interview questions to use to learn more about a specific candidate. Moreover, you can compare candidates to one another.

What sets PXT Select apart from other hiring assessments?

  • Once a candidate takes an assessment, you have ongoing access to all reports in the PXT Select suite. So down the road, when that employee wants a promotion, for example, you can use the data and check their suitability.
  • The reports are useful and easy to read. Packed with information on candidates’ skills, job compatibility, manager compatibility, and more, the reports don’t require interpretation.

Hiring tip: When you share candidates’ results with them, see how they respond. Their attitude when receiving feedback provides additional information for your decision.

Using a hiring assessment adds objectivity and efficiency to your hiring process. When you’re considering multiple candidates—all with good resumes and good personalities—the data removes some of the guesswork and points you to the best hire for your organization.

In a Medical Emergency, Words Can Save Lives

Doctor visit a little patient at home

In emergency medical situations, quick, expert care delivered by knowledgeable professionals is critical—it saves lives. Perhaps less obviously, so do words. When a patient is triaged in an emergency setting, the patient and his or her family might not understand the medical terminology being used by medical professionals. Unfortunately, this can compromise care.

Communication between families and medical professionals can be especially difficult when English is not the family’s primary language. Family members might relay a patient’s status using words that are misinterpreted by the medical staff. In a case that drew media attention several years ago, relatives described a relative in a coma as “intoxicado.” The doctor incorrectly treated the patient for an overdose, with dire consequences. 

However, even without a language barrier, patients, and family members unfamiliar with medical terminology can misinterpret a doctor’s message. For example, “unconscious” can mean one thing to a layperson and another thing to a doctor. Even “positive or negative” is often misunderstood.     

How can the knowledge-of-medical-terminology gap be bridged? 

Medical professionals—translate complex medical jargon into easy-to-understand words for your patients. Bring in a translator when needed. Ask patients and their families if they understand what you are saying. Ask again. Clarify until you’re comfortable that you’re all on the same page. 

Patients and families—do not be shy in a medical setting. If you need a translator, request one. Be sure that doctors, nurses, and emergency medical technicians clearly understand what you are conveying. Repeat it until they do. If you don’t understand what a medical professional is saying, but you’re embarrassed to admit it, speak up anyway. Your life or the life of your loved one depends on it.   

We offer three thorough, self-paced courses, Online Medical Terminology, Medical Terms I, Medical Terms II. Email us at learn@corexcel.com to learn more or register.

Surprise! These Professionals Study Anatomy & Physiology

When you think of students in an Anatomy & Physiology class, do you picture future doctors and nurses? Or emergency medical technicians (EMTs)? You might be surprised to learn about less-obvious professionals who also study these topics.

Tattoo artists. Several states require that tattoo artists complete Anatomy & Physiology classes to become licensed. It makes sense if you think about it. A tattoo artist should understand the parts of the body when they’re putting needles into people!

Artists. Anatomy & Physiology is particularly important for sculptors who want to craft realistic human figures. This class can also be useful for artists painting the human body. Fun fact: Leonardo da Vinci and Michaelangelo performed dissections to gain anatomical knowledge that would improve their work.

Medical illustrators. These professional artists typically have a master’s degree in medical illustration. The curriculum includes classes in anatomy, physiology, and other sciences. You can see their artwork in books, journals, animations, and computer simulations.

Medical test writers. Professionals writing questions for the MCAT, United States Medical Licensing Examination®, and medical recertification exams must have in-depth knowledge of the human body.

Fitness professionals. You can’t help clients strengthen and tone their muscles if you don’t know how muscles work.

Attorneys. Not all attorneys would need a course in Anatomy & Physiology. However, for those handling medical malpractice, auto accident, or workers’ compensation cases, an understanding of these subjects is important.

Did you know we offer a fully accredited, online Anatomy & Physiology course? The course is self-paced and interactive, covering a wide range of modules. Upon successful completion, you will receive a certificate of completion for 9.5 Continuing Education Units (CEUs).
