If you want to work in the Health Industry
You need to Speak their Language

This course is relevant to anyone working or wishing to work in fields of health, alternative medicine or para medical areas; such as reception for a doctor or natural therapist.
 
Many if not most jobs, in health services, are positions other than being a doctor or a nurse. Many of those who may start out with asapirations of being a medical practitioner, will in fact, end up working in some other health support role: perhaps medical administration, marketing or as a techical assistant. Others who start in these roles, may end up going on to become a doctor.   Ambition is good; but your eventual job always depends upon much more than just what you study.
 
Whatever you end up doing though -this is a good starting point for a possible career in the health industry.
