I have to conduct this survey for a class that I'm taking. It wouldn't take you more than 15-20 minutes to do it, and I would really appreciate it, since the more "results" I have, the better my final project will be.
Arrange the following in the order of who you think has the most important overall role in the medical field:
I know it might be hard (and/or difficult) but try your best, I guess.
Write a short description regarding what you think each of the aforementioned "roles" entail in the medical field. Please don't use Google; if you don't know what X or Y does, please say so. If you don't have a clear idea, jot down what you THINK it entails.
- Being a football coach entails selecting the starting lineup, performing substitutions in a game, training the team...etc
- I think being a football coach entails stuff such as training the players and scouting potential players..maybe even setting the team's budget.
- I have no clue what being a football coach actually entails. All I know is that he's the guy in charge of everything.
Big thanks to anyone who chooses to do this survey.

As a warning, these are my personal views more than anything (e.g., I think Nutrionists are a complete waste of time), so they're not intended to be accurate with the official version even if I was aware of the official version; these views are Americanized; I didn't put too much time/thought into this survey.

Physicians are the most important because they are where most of the general population will interface with the medical world. Preventative care is important and undervalued in the American health system, so I placed emphasis on positions that enforce that such as: Physicians who can perform routine physical exams, Dentists who advise their patients to maintain good dental hygiene, Dietitian/Nutritionist who can advise good eating habits (small impact unfortunately).
