Would you prefer to be working in a quiet environment where you can remain focusing on your work without being distracted? Does the thought of enforced social stimulation or interaction make you feel uncomfortable?
There are a lot of misconceptions about introverts; that they’re antisocial, unfriendly, shy or lonely. The reality is that introverts are just normal people who get their energy from spending time alone.
The good news is, the healthcare sector has interesting career options for the less socially minded and that’s what we’ll be looking at in this article.
A medical lab technician is a vital role in the healthcare industry. Work in a laboratory, a medical lab technician stills plays an important role in saving the lives of patients, they just do it through the analysis of biological and chemical samples sent through from front-line medical staff.
You’ll be playing a role as important as any doctor or nurse, just without the fact to face interactional normally associated with healthcare roles.
Being able to take accurate and effective X-ray images is a key part of modern medical diagnosis and, as a Radiologic Technologist, that is exactly what you will be responsible for.
In this role, you will be performing diagnostic imaging observations on patients using X-rays, MRIs and other advanced imaging techniques used for analysis.
If you are entirely fine with the sigh of blood, then working as a surgical technologist could be an excellent career choice. You will need to briefly interact with patients, however, most of the time you’ll be dealing with people who are unconscious through anesthesia.
Your duties will include, preparing and sterilizing the operating room and its equipment and assisting surgeons during surgery.
