    Medical Social Worker as one of the highest paying jobs? Really? I have worked in a hospital for over 30 years and the social workers have always been one of the lowest paid in the hospital setting. I am curious where you obtained your information from.

    Is it true that hospital administrators/healthcare administrators couldn't be trusted at all? I read in a blog that these hospital administrators always have an agenda that's not aligned with the physicians and/or the patients.

    here's the link to the blog:

    I'm curious. I'm interested to work in a hospital even not as a doctor but this post terrified me.

    Thanks for the inclusion and recognition of athletic trainers on this list. However, I do take issue with athletic trainers being listed as a "nonclinical" career. While many athletic trainers do have administrative and/or teaching responsibilities, the VAST majority of our profession spend a significant portion of their time delivering quality, CLINICAL health care.
    A succinct job description of athletic training is the prevention, care, and rehabilitation of injuries for the physically active. Athletic trainers provide hands-on care, and manage all types of injuries and rehabilitation in a wide variety of clinical settings. In fact, athletic training may be one of the very most clinical health care professions of all.
