ExploreHealthCareers.org is a free, peer-reviewed website designed to educate students and advisors about health careers. ExploreHealthCareers.org’s mission is to help solve two urgent problems in U.S. health care: the under-representation of minorities in the workforce and the shortage of health professionals in medically underserved communities. ExploreHealthCareers.org hopes to help build a stronger health care workforce by providing easy access to updated, peer-reviewed career descriptions that inspire and motivate students to find health careers that suit them. Their vision is to see the health professionals of tomorrow be highly skilled and motivated, and as diverse as the patients they serve. Considering that, health care is a vast field that offers a range of diverse opportunities, it is important that all student research before deciding on a position to make sure you choose one that’s a good fit for them. People can start with the Career Explorer in their website, as it collects details about all different types of health care positions to allow you to compare and contrast those that interest you. Furthermore, the best health care practitioners are committed to giving their patients the best care possible. These health care practitioners prioritize keeping up with the latest developments in the field, continuing to study and learn long after their initial schooling ends. If you have a similar interest in lifelong learning, it’s a good idea to consider entering the health care field. Finally, Health care is increasingly focusing on team work as patients’ recovery depends more and more on how well each member of the team performs his or her specific function and how well they communicate and collaborate with one another. Even dentists — 70% of whom work in a solo private practice — usually supervise and work closely with several staff members. When choosing a health care position, you’ll want to consider the amount of teamwork it requires to ensure it’s a good fit for you and your working style.

Education First (EF) provides life-changing education for global citizens. For over 50 years, our mission has been to give confidence and freedom to people of all ages, nationalities and backgrounds. With the desire to define your own path in life, and a little courage, Education First opens up a world of possibilities. We transform dreams into international opportunities. We combine language training with cultural exchange, academic achievement and educational travel to deliver courses and programs that transform dreams into international opportunities. In the early 1960s, a young Swedish man named Bertil Hult traveled to England for the first time. As a dyslexic, school had always been a challenge for him. But he was surprised by how effortlessly he picked up English in England. Bertil became convinced that traditional classroom-based teaching was not always the most effective. In 1965, he decided to start a small company called Europeiska Ferieskolan (European Holiday School – EF for short) that combined language learning with travel abroad. He called the program Språkresor, or Language Travel, which provided one of the world's first hands-on learning experiences outside the classroom. Today, experiential learning is a cornerstone of modern education. For Education First, it has been the philosophy behind every program for 50 years. This simple but effective way to learn has helped us become the world’s largest educational organization.
