Week Four – Sector Focused in the NYCIDY

Health Services

If you are here it is because you were drawn to Health Services either by interest or because your CareerZone assessment revealed that you have natural skills, abilities, and talents which would make you good at careers that are related to this sector.

Remember to Connect

As you move through the material and return to the site each time and as you move through your group sessions, remember to always begin with your check-in.

First, return to your Career Zone Landing page and reorient yourself to the Health Services Sector.

People working in this field provide healthcare and support services to address the physical, mental and emotional needs of their clients. They apply scientific, technical, social, and interpersonal skills to diagnose and treat illnesses, document care, provide a therapeutic environment and maintain the health of their clients.

Using the buttons below go to each of these websites to complete all the steps in your Pro-Action Plan.

Pro-Action Plan Step Week 4 (2 of 2):

Exploring Your Sector

Big Note: The directions on your Pro-Action Plan “Career Journey” Page will only show you the Number of Steps you have to complete. Please use these directions to complete the steps.

Step One: On your Pro-Action Plan, research the above websites and write a summary of each initiative.

Step Two: After you explore the sites, review the videos to identify 2 to 4 top priorities for the way health care is being administered in these communities.

Step Three: Using the below questions to guide you, consider what your priorities would be for your NYCIDY.

  • What are some Health Services that are essential to your NYCIDY?
  • Why were these services chosen for NYCIDY?
  • Will the services be free to NYCIDY residents?
  • Will these services be provided in a brick and mortar facility (hospital, clinic) or will the services be available via a mobile clinic? Or both?
  • Should students who show strong abilities in science be automatically placed into a Health Services sector learning track in HS?
  • Should volunteering in the NYCID Health Services sector be mandatory for all Healthcare providers?

Step Four: Be prepared to present the following ideas for a sector-focused project, so that your sector-focused team can together decide which project you will present for the NYCIDY Games.

  1. Create a NYCIDY 1-Page Health Service Action Plan – Health Services Action Plan should address the questions in Step Three.
  2. Create a NYCIDY Health Services mock website or an ap showing what Health Services are offered to NYCIDY residents. (Feel free to take inspiration from the above links)

Team could design a website mock up or wireframe using Google Docs or by using Moqups
