Health Matters offers an inside look at health care careers today.
For those interested in a career in health care, there is no shortage of options when it comes to the types of jobs available. New technology, complex patient needs and an evolving health care landscape have led to a wide range of jobs requiring different skills and experience.
In our third episode of Season 5 of Health Matters with Doylestown Health, we take a closer look at five different health-related careers by speaking with five Doylestown Health professionals. Each guest describes the path taken to their current position, what the job entails, and suggestions for those who might be considering that career.
The episode was filmed on location at Doylestown Hospital by Central Bucks High School South media students.
Host Ashley Heidler, Doylestown Health pediatric outreach manager, conducts the interviews.
