Maryland hospitals unveiled a new online tool meant to help students and individuals looking for new opportunities to decide if a medical career is right for them. JoinMDHealth.org is a new website created by the Maryland Hospital Association in collaboration with 60 medical facilities and health systems statewide. The website offers visitors a quiz that gives people an idea of what their “professional personality” entails. The results can help people decide what careers in health fit their personality best. For example, people who test as “heart-felt” may fit best as a clinical social worker or a community health worker. “These career opportunities are tremendous chances for people to get into something that provides an opportunity for service, an opportunity to make a good living, and then an opportunity also to go into leadership into management,” said Ed Lovern, president and CEO of Ascension Saint Agnes Hospital.
