Individual Career Plan 1. My first career choice is to be a physical therapist 2.

My alternative career choice is to an obstetrician and gynecologist (OB/GYN) 3. A. I do believe that I have the ability to fulfill my dreams of being a physical

therapist. I know that I have to work really hard to get into a good college that provides the classes in need to be a physical therapist. Its always in the back of my mind that I in order to reach my dream that I have to keep my grades up, stay out of trouble, and always have a positive attitude about things. I absolutely love being around people, and with this career I will be around people all the time, and the fact that I get to help them get better makes everything that much better. B. I also believe that I have the ability to fulfill my secondary dreams of becoming

an obstetrician and gynecologist. Just like to become a physical therapist, I know that I have to keep my grades up to get into a good school. I love working and being around babies. The fact that I would get to be with the mother throughout much of the pregnancy is just an amazing thought to me. Being healthy and trying to keep other people has always been one of my main goals, that why I want to go into the medical field. 4. A. As a physical therapist I will get to do many things, one being; creating

individualized treatment programs for patients that help maintain, improve, and restore functions. Another is to examine patients and record findings which leads to identifying problems and determining a diagnosis. Use massage and tractions to relieve pain and improve function. Instructing patients and their families in treatment procedures to be

continued at home. Reviewing doctors' referrals and examining patients' medical histories. Recording treatment and progress in patients' charts. Receiving patient's consent to treatment. Testing and measuring patients' strength, posture, balance, muscle function, and range of motion. Treating with physical agents, such as hot and cold packs, electrical stimulation, and ultrasounds. Fitting and adjusting prosthetic and orthotic devices for patient. B. As an OB/GYN I would be doing things such as; meeting with female patients to

gather background information. Also I would be examining patients to find location of health problems, ordering lab tests to help make diagnoses. I would be counseling patients on preventive health measures, such as diet, hygiene, and exercise. Prescribing medication to patients, if necessary. Monitoring patients' health, and keeping records of their health. Referring patients to health care specialists when needed. Caring for women during pregnancy, birth, and after they have delivered their infants. Helping deliver babies, including performing cesarean sections. Writing chart notes, and filling out paperwork for government agencies or insurance companies. Assigning tasks to nurses and other health workers also. 5. A. Physical therapy: i.
