Professional Schools and Colleges

In the medical world, your choice of school is everything. Colleges can differ greatly in terms of their medical programs; a school that might be very strong in everything else could have a very weak medical program that lacks while a school that might be weak in everything else could very easily have one of the best medical programs in the country. It all depends on your choice of school and your given area that you want to go into.

One of the fastest growing fields right now is the field of occupational therapy. Students who go into occupational therapy study and develop how to teach patients core skills to find work. It’s a lot of hands-on work with patients and building their skills up. However, occupational therapy is not a very natural thing that comes to people, this is why your choice of school is crucial. Your education that you receive will very easily directly affect your ability to find work, but also your success in the field. This is why I strongly urge you, if you are interested in this field, to attend one of the top occupational schools in the country. Right now, it seems like USC is leading the pack in this field as their occupational therapy program is looking stellar.

A very scary thing about attending a top school is the amount of time you might have to spend there. Many medical students get stuck in the system because they can’t afford to stay there until they get their degree, so they forced to take a break and come back – this whole process can be very expensive. However, you don’t need to get a huge degree to make some decent money in the medical field. If you take a look at the job of an ultrasound technician, you might be surprised that just a 4 year degree plus some extra training in an accredited program is all it takes. Ultrasound technicians will learn the ins-and-outs of ultrasound technology; how it works, why we use it, and most importantly how to read it. All of this technology is quickly changing and adapting so this makes this field very exciting to be in. With just a 4-year degree, you can expect to make about $70,000 as an ultrasound technician. Not too bad for just 4 years!
