Based on the two-year analysis of career development needs conducted by the Program for Women in Health Sciences, University of California, San Francisco and funded by the U.S. Office of Health Resources Opportunity, this guide provides step-by-step instructions for career planning and exploration for laypersons or helping professionals. Over 100 careers in the health sciences, health professions, paraprofessional health services, and public health fields are described along with educational requirements, cost of training, employment opportunities, career contingencies, and sources for further information. Strategies for selecting an appropriate training program, gaining admission, surviving training, and seeking employment are also included. (Author)
