What are other healthcare careers that you know of?

Has 20 years experience. Specializes in pediatrics, ed, public health.

My boss has asked me to prepare a flyer for high school students regarding healthcare careers. This flyer will be distributed at a high school career day. Now seriously, I have to write about things other than nursing? I have tried to find a list that may have already been published but no avail. Can you suggest other positions in or out of the hospital for me to use? (examples, surgical techs, CNAs, physical therapist, physical therapist aides):heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat:heartbeat

All suggestions are gladly appreciated and website links a plus.

Thank to all
