HLTH 105 CAREER INVESTIGATION PROJECT ASSIGNMENT INSTRUCTIONS OVERVIEW Career exploration can be a learning process. One of the best ways to gain information is through first-hand experience and observation. This assignment will provide the opportunity to interview and visit with a working health professional in your career of interest.

Discover, through firsthand knowledge, if a career or type of specialty area in healthcare is a good fit for you.
