Health Care Professions Merit Badge
This merit badge will replace the current Medicine merit badge with updated requirements, but will continue to use the same merit badge patch.
The badge will introduce scouts to a broad range of health care professions, such as: Allopathic and Osteopathic physicians; Podiatrists; Chiropractors; Nurse Practitioners; Psychologists; Optometrists; Audiologists; Physician Assistants; Registered Nurses (and other nurses); Pharmacists; EMTs; Physical Therapists; Dietitians; Speech-Language Pathologists; Medical Technologists; Phlebotomists; and others.
Scouts currently working on the Medicine merit badge can continue on it until completed, but once the Health Care Professions merit badge is released, Scouts may not begin working on the old Medicine merit badge. Hard copy editions of the Health Care Professions merit badge pamphlet are also scheduled to be available this fall.
