Exploring Medical Professions (Science)

The human body is a marvelous, complex machine. The body’s systems are composed of specific organs that work together to keep the body functioning. Some of these systems are the skeletal, muscle, nervous, digestive, respiratory, circulatory, lymphatic, endocrine and reproductive systems. Millions of moving parts keep our bodies in good condition. When anything does go wrong, we are fortunate that we can call on our professional medical workers to help correct problems and return us to good health. Have your students use this worksheet to think about each of these health professions, and be sure to list the body systems in which each professional specializes.
