Welcome to Health Occupations (10th)/Medical Terminology (11th)!
What is Health Occupations?
An introduction to the health care field. It includes history of medicine, characteristics of medical workers, and the many careers in and around health care. Not every student will become a doctor/nurse, but the advancement of medicine has created many new fields that many students have never considered. Our final goal is to find a direction and move forward.
