successful management and completion of project deadlines.

Week 8 Establishing My Academic and Career Path
Assignment assignment
1) Complete this assignment as outlined in “HLT 600
Establishing My Academic and Career Path.”
Establishing My Academic and Career
Path

As you begin the transition from academic courses to career
opportunities, reflect on how the strategies already discussed can help to
guide you through the process. Consider the degree path you have chosen and
what additional skills or activities you should engage in beyond the academic
learning in your courses to be successful. What initiatives and goals do you
have for this career? Begin and continue to establish your academic journey and
career goals.

Individual courses within the program will offer opportunities through
assignments that develop particular skills pertinent to specific career
requirements and transfer of acquired knowledge. Other courses and specific
assignments such as interview, practicum, and capstone projects provide
opportunities for students to be exposed to relevant problems and creative
activities in health care. These opportunities will require students to apply
techniques acquired from the classroom to active investigation with experienced
mentors in the field.

Research where to find career openings in your chosen field, select a
position you might be interested in, and identify the qualifications and
experience required. Identify these requirements as you progress through the
coursework provided in your program. Take initiative to inquire and explore as
you make connections with your coursework and career goals. Some items to
consider further are membership in a professional association, the use of
Internet job boards for research into future trends, licensure compliance throughout
the country/world, and occupational conditions such as location, shifts worked,
required equipment, or safety standards.

Listed below
are some suggestions related to the types of information that you may want to
include in this section of the document:
1) Who? Who would make up my network (e.g.,
peers, instructors, professionals, colleagues) essential to success in my
chosen field in relation to this particular course?
2) What? What are my findings from
researching competencies and/or certification requirements for my specific job
role in relation to this course?
3) When? When should I begin to make the
connection between my course of study and my career goals?
4)
Where? Where does this course fit in my
career goals? Where could I schedule an interview or internship to bridge the
theory in my course with the practice of a job in the field?
5)
Why? Why are peer-reviewed articles
important and what is the significance of them in a career in health care?
6) How? How does this course relate to the requirements of my career goals?
How can I make a link between the course and career experience that I need?

Focus on the concepts and
skills learned from this course and spend time reflecting on Who, What, When, Where, Why,or How, in establishing your academic and
career path. Examples are provided below. The table will continue to expand as
you progress through the course.

Policy Brief Guide
Legislators seldom have the time to read through all the
literature related to a specific health care policy question. To make
well-informed decisions, they rely on short, tightly written briefs that
quickly and cogently relay the important policy facts, questions, and arguments
about an issue.
An effective policy brief will advance a persuasive argument
in a concise, clearly organized fashion. A policy brief does not include a
lengthy analysis or review of the literature.
Policy Brief Assignment Template
Introduction:
Begin with a brief overview and state the health care
problem.
Include the history and social context of the public health
condition.
Recommendations:
Clearly state your recommendations for addressing the issue
up front.
Background:
Outline the history or background relevant to the global
prevalence of the condition and health disparities related to the condition.
Describe the population(s) most affected by the conditions.
Describe the major agencies responsible for enforcement of
public health related to this issue along with outlining their roles.
Analysis:
Constructively criticize arguments, ideologies, and the
quality of current actions being taken to address the condition.
Use evidence from literature and other sources to support
your perspectives and advance your recommendations.
Conclusion:
Conclude with a persuasive argument and summary statement.
Summarize the major points and provide recommendations for
the implementation of specific policies to address the health care issue.
