Those working in Accident and Emergency Medicine will deal with cases of medical emergencies, major trauma, and large volumes of minor injuries and common illness. It is a busy, demanding job, with emergency doctors having to make quick decisions under pressure that could have an immediate impact on a patient’s illness or injury.
A Clinical Psychologist deals with a wide range of mental and physical health problems. They are the more intense out of the counsellors, focussing on those with serious psychosis or other mental issues.
They deal with addiction, depression, anxiety, learning difficulties and relationship issues. First of all the clinical psychologist will meet with his or her client to identify specific issues, whether they be emotional, behavioural or mental. Through observation, tests and interviews, the psychologist will examine their patient, and in turn, diagnose any existing or potential disorders.
Environmental Medicine involves medicine, environmental science, chemistry and environmental pathology and is viewed as the medical branch of the broader field of environmental health. A great deal of this particular medical field concerns itself with the interactions between environment and human health and the role the environment has in causing disease.
Pharmacology is the area of biomedical science that concerns itself with the study of drugs, how medicines work and how they are processed by the body. It is the crucial field in which new medicines are discovered to help fight against a vast range of diseases. Pharmacology not only focuses on improving the effectiveness medicines have, but also on unwanted side effects and understanding why individuals differ in responses to specific medicines. Pharmacologists work closely with the other fields that make up modern biomedical science, such as neuroscience, molecular and cell biology, immunology and cancer biology.
Medical practitioners who specialise in Psychiatry are devoted to the diagnosis, prevention and treatment of mental illness. They are trained medical doctors who can prescribe medication, and spend a lot of their time with patients who are on a course of medication.
Those who specialise in Sports Injuries and Medicine serve athletes and those who are active, who have suffered injuries as a result of their heightened physical activity. They issue medical programmes and even surgery in order to rehabilitate and heal their patients, referring for further treatment when necessary.
Therapy and Therapeutics cover all psychological therapies that involve a person talking to a therapist about their problems. The most common forms of therapy are cognitive behavioural therapy, psychotherapy, family therapy, relationship counselling, group therapy, interpersonal therapy and behavioural action.
