They can diagnose and treat patients with head, neck and oral cancer. They can even administer anesthesia and perform cosmetic surgeries, such as facelifts.

Locum Tenens Optometrist Jobs.  If you were to take a poll on which of the five senses are most important to people, sight would probably be high on the list.

That’s why an optometrist’s job is so important. “We want to help patients achieve their best vision on a day-to-day basis,” says Teri Geist, communication chair of the American Optometric Association and a practicing optometrist.

Eric Robertson, the director of Kaiser Permanente’s Advanced Manual Therapy Fellowship, says he first learned about the profession at age 15, when he was involved in a motocross accident. He required physical therapy, and over the next 10 months of rehab he got to know his therapist really well, and the field appealed to him: “Physical therapy is a real safe, happy approach,” he says. “It offers a meaningful and positive alternative to pharmaceuticals or surgery.” Indeed, many doctors will refer patients with a wide range of physical issues, from athletic injuries to neurological traumas to physical therapists. These professionals …Read more »

Locum Tenens Podiatry Jobs David Yeager first visited a podiatrist for an ingrown nail during his undergraduate years at Seattle University. He started chatting with Douglas Ichikawa of Bellevue Podiatric Physicians about medicine, and Ichikawa asked if Yeager had ever considered podiatry as a career. At the time, Yeager didn’t know a lot about the specialty, but Ichikawa started informing him. “He also knew I was a student and knew I was broke, and he didn’t charge me,” Yeager says. That appointment stuck with Yeager, and the more he looked into the field, the more interested he became. Podiatrists are …Read more »

In 2008, Maria Siemionow led a team of surgeons in a 22-hour surgery to replace the face of gunshot victim Connie Culp. This near-total face transplant was the first surgery of its kind in the United States, and Siemionow says it was one of the most stressful times in her life. Not only was she in charge of delegating responsibilities to a handful of surgeons, she was also attempting to do a procedure on a living person that had previously been done on cadavers only. Siemionow says she was subconsciously thinking about the patient’s family and the rescue plan, if …Read more »

They’re the people we call when the contractions come every five minutes. We rush to them for broken arms, and we make appointments when we find irregular freckles. We come to them with coughs and colds and when we suspect that mom might be losing her memory or that dad’s heart is working too hard. They’re obstetricians and gynecologists, ER doctors, dermatologists, primary care providers, neurologists, cardiologists – in a word, physicians. There are two main types: Medical Doctors (M.D.s) and Doctors of Osteopathic Medicine (D.O.s). Both diagnose and treat patients for a range of medical issues, although a D.O. …Read more »

Florence Nightingale, the pioneer of modern nursing, lived more than a century ago, but her legacy lives on in hospitals, clinics and schools. Nightingale’s concern for patients stretched beyond administering medication to caring for the whole person – physical as well as emotional, intellectual and spiritual. And she backed up her nursing philosophies with research. Today, nursing research is just one of the exciting changes in the field, says Kathy McCauley, associate dean of academic programs at the University of Pennsylvania’s School of Nursing. Increasingly, evidence-based science is confirming the contributions nurses make to patient care. So, who are the …Read more »

When Samia Rafeedie was an undergrad at Ohio State University, she sought out the help of an academic advisor. She knew she wanted to work in health care, but she just didn’t know “where” in health care. Her advisor suggested occupational therapy. Rafeedie remembers thinking: “I don’t want to help people find jobs.” But she followed up her advisor’s recommendation with a visit to an open house in the School of Allied Medicine, where health care professionals from different fields described their work. She’ll never forget what an occupational therapist said there: “Physical therapy teaches people how to walk, and …Read more »

Neil DiSarno always knew he wanted to make a career out of helping people. But he didn’t know just how he wanted to help people.  In college, he took a class on communication disorders and then shadowed an audiologist at the workplace. What he saw hooked him. “Patients were generally very grateful,” DiSarno says. “I liked that you got to work with all ages – newborns to nursing homes. I liked the technology. I liked the machinery. It was a match for me.” These days, DiSarno is the chief staff officer for audiology at the American Speech-Language-Hearing Association. Before that, …Read more »

When most people sit down for dinner with friends, they’re probably thinking about what they should order from the menu. Whether to pick the burger with french fries or opt for a healthy salad instead might be the cause of some angst. But they’re probably not worried about whether the waiter or waitress will understand their words or whether they’ll be able to chew and swallow their meal. Yet millions of Americans do struggle with just these things – speaking and swallowing – and this is where speech-language pathologists come in. According to Elizabeth McCrea, the 2014 president of the …Read more »
