  • Which Florida colleges offer training needed for this field
  • Why the student would be good (or bad) at this career field
  • What the student learned about this career by being at a clinical site
  • What the advantages and disadvantages of the career are
  • What the outlook is for this field in terms of job security and remuneration

The 4-5 minute PowerPoint summary of the written paper included information and pictures of what the student had been doing at their clinical site.
