From the patient's point of view, the student watches video segments of each primary professional that offer a glimpse of the health care professional's role in the care of the young patient. Students are introduced to career paths that include every level of education and various salary ranges- careers that range from phlebotomist to occupational therapist to psychiatrist. Accompanying career profile screens offer interview videos with each primary career and basic information such as duties and responsibilities, career attributes, and educational and certification requirements.
