General Medical Training
General medical training is important for a number of roles where a basic knowledge of medicine is used directly or helps to enhance general understanding. There are patient facing roles such as medical aide, or you may prefer to work in a hospital as a medical technician. There are a lot of variables involved with the type of training you receive, whether you study any particular medical disciplines, and how long you study for. Most states also require licensure of some disciplines, some of which are transferable between states, some of which are not. Basic general medical training subjects might include anatomy, physiology, circulatory system, pulmonary system, first aid, health and safety, mouth-to-mouth resuscitation, and ethics.
Clearly, the career that you opt for will be decided by your levels of education, specialties, and certification. You may become a medical aide, helping patients in their homes. You may help community nurses to wash, dress, feed, and change dressings for patients. You might be interested in working in a hospital sanitizing department, cleaning, sterilizing, and ordering surgical instruments. A physician assistant may appeal; you would help a physician to carry out procedures ranging from administrative through medical. Again, what you would be allowed to do relies on what type of training you have received and the prevailing state regulations at the time of your employment. With further education, you may be interested in becoming a healthcare worker or technician. Many people start off with general medical training then use this as a springboard to become sonographers, paramedics, X-ray technicians, or member of ambulance crew.
