Exploring This Job

Volunteering at local hospitals and clinics is a great way to learn more about careers in health care. This will help you to decide if this type of work environment is a good match for your skills and interests. You might also join a volunteer ambulance corps to get additional experience working with patients. You should also conduct information interviews with hospitalists who work at different types of hospitals to understand the various work environments and duties. For example, working at an academic medical center is often much different than working at a small community hospital.
