Men Can Do It Too

All around the nation, men are beginning to challenge that stereotype all the way from Utah to the East Coast. Let’s take a look at a few medical professions that are harshly stereotyped for women and see why men can also do the job well.

Men Make Great Nurses

According to minoritynurse.com, in 2008, there were 3,063,163 licensed registered nurses in the United States. Only 6.6 percent of those were men. This shows the effects of the stereotypes placed on the nursing profession.

Men As Dental Assistants

Again, sexism strikes. Most imagine women as dental assistants, when in actuality men are made to be great dental assistants as well. Dentists look for people who are reliable, teachable and can work well with others. Who says men can’t have these characteristics?

Men As Personal Fitness Trainers

This stereotype is not as bad as the nursing stereotype, but we can sometimes see a trend in the idea of a woman wanting a woman as their personal trainer. In fact, if a person attends a medical college and decides to become a personal trainer, we have to remember that they are well equipped with the knowledge and skills it takes to do the job. So women, why not have a cute guy be your trainer? He knows what he’s doing.

Somehow the word “assistant” has been engraved in some people’s minds to mean woman. Hopefully, the times are changing and people realize this is just the doing of an untrue stereotype. Men can be a medical assistant and be very proud of what they do.

Men as Healthcare Office Specialists

Those who attend a medical college, such as AmeriTech in Utah, can go through this program which prepares you to preform the duties and functions of an office manager or specialty administrative assistant for physicians or dentists. There’s that word again—“assistant.” Men, don’t be afraid of this profession, either. We think you’d look great with that office title.

Men In The Health Information Technology Field

We know some men like to be in on the action like it’s an episode of Grey’s Anatomy, but the truth is that some men are born with a mind brilliant enough to go through college like it’s a breeze when to comes to information technology. Don’t be afraid to be the hero in the background, guys.

Men As Physical Therapists

Some think women have that special touch that it takes to be a kind and gentle physical therapist. It is often forgotten that men can have it to. Just think, you could be working with some of your favorite NFL players, guys.

Men As Occupational Therapists

Yes, women may be stereotyped to have more of a soft spot for others, but we all know those guys that have one too. Occupational therapists is just another profession that men can tackle just as women can.
