Civilian Job Suggestions:

Speech Therapist – Speech is so ubiquitous that just about any speech-related impairment can adversely affect an individual’s ability to function in society. Speech pathologists work with patients suffering from hearing, speech, and language disabilities to communicate efficiently. Some speech pathologists specialize in working with different age groups while others specialize in specific communication problems.

Physician Assistant – Unlike medical assistants, physician assistants are often first-line care providers. Their exact job functions differ between medical fields and state lines, but they usually provide hands-on care and are qualified to diagnosis issues, order and interpret tests, and provide certain treatments.

Physical Therapist –Whether it’s a sport-related injury or something more serious, physical therapists work with patients to regain as much mobility as possible. The road to recovery can be as simple as performing a few stretches each day, or as harrowing as learning how to walk again. Either way, physical therapists must be personable and excel at creating custom therapy regimens.
