Medical jobs in Poland?

Are there any medical, dentistry or pharmacy jobs wanted in Poland? Other options I have are psychiatry or physiotherapy. I like helping people. Which one has the shortest track? Which one pays the best (I guess dentistry)?

All of those require years of study and fluent Polish...

All occupations you mentioned are in high demand in Poland except for physiotherapists. Their education is the easiest (though not the shortest) of all so there are many of them. Dentists are little money machines, like everywhere.

Yeah I know they require years of study. At 32 that's bad but what else can I do? I totally detest working in corporate offices.

Also are aptekars (pharmacists) wanted and paid well?

Actually here in Bulgaria we don't have separate dental hygiensists, is there such a thing in Poland: businessinsider.com/highest-paying-non-desk-2015-4#now-see-the-best-non-desk-jobs-that-dont-require-a-college-degree-31

Why would handing swabs and mouthwash to patients be more interesting than an office job ?

Everything is more interesting to me than an office job. I tried so many times and I always quit. I've had like 4 or 5 jobs in the last 4 years only. The longest I stayed in an office job was 1 year and that was a small office with only 2 other people. As I've lately been in largr companies my stays are getting shorter and shorter. I hate office politics, many of the type of people that work in offices (economics, business, marketing graduates etc.), offices themselves (grey carpets, rows of desks, too many computers, too many people talking on the phones or in general). A dentist office looks more inviting to spend the work day in. Even classrooms look more inviting.

Sorry for double posting, mods can unite them. Are there the equivalent of DOs (doctors of osteopathy) and NDs (Doctor of Naturopathic) in Poland? Their degrees are usually shorter than MDs (medical doctors) but are real degrees from unis unlike Homeopathy that is just a course.

Yes, visiting a pharmacy yesterday, in a small town , I saw an advertisement looking for pharmacists. Paid decently but much less than doctors.

I prefectly understand you., If I had to work in an office, I would die of depressive boredom after 1 month. That is why I became a teacher - you can`t imagine how amusing it is. hahaha

Hey, why don`t you become a teacher? Firstly, take and pass a state exam to get a certificate allowing you to teach in primary school. Then, when you finish language studies, find employment in high schools.

^^Did it pay more than a teacher?
^It's certainly better, I miss classrooms from school. If someone told me that one day I will work in an office I'd ditch college. I guess with a BsBA degree that's a given but I imagined a personal office not one of 100 ppl, it's like a sweatshop. The thing is I feel uncomfortable among children and it doesn't pay very well. At least I think a person doing Physiotherapy or Dental Hygiene (Dental Assistant) gets more, no?

On the other hand schools and high schools certainly feel more welcoming to me than most university buildings. I mean the huge new ones with huge halls are so triggering to me, I apparently feel terrible in big enclosed spaces like warehouses, large corporate offices and universities with huge rooms.

Well, it depends. After several years of gradual advancement, you earn much more than as a novice teacher. At least in Poland, but I am sure Bulgaria has a similar system.

In Bulgaria call center agents make more than nurses which to me is totally crazy (I made 800 Euro as an agent, a nurse makes 400-600). So are non-doctor medical personnel paid worse than a call center worker in Poland or is the Polish system saner?

Nurses certainly earn more here. My eldest son, while a freshman, worked at a call center for a month or two and it was peanut money. Don`t they work on commission mostly?
