CAREERS IN MEDICAL SCIENCE

In more detail than the Engelbardt career book above, Seide provides salary information and addresses of schools and organizations along with educational requirements and generally optimistic job descriptions (""psychiatric nurses are no longer performing custodial care. . . an experienced dietitian can expect $15,000-$20,000 a year""). Jobs range from certified lab assistant to public health statistician and sanitation inspector; Seide also includes the ""noble"" doctor himself -- described here in hyperbolic terms of dedication, selflessness and spiritual discipline that make no distinction between the Hippocratic ideal and contemporary reality. Silliest of all is the appended 35-question ""personal health career match-mate test"" (if you answer yes to five of seven questions in Test I then you will ""in all probability"" make a successful medical technologist). We assume that the addresses and job titles are reliable.
