There are 100s of careers in the healthcare industry; an industry that promotes the health and wellness of people in so many ways. Some involve working directly with people in therapeutic or diagnostic services, while others involve research into disease, collecting and organizing data and information, as well as an amazing number of support services.
Work locations range from hospitals, medical or dental offices, to research labs, cruise ships, ambulances, sports arenas, education, or within the community. So even if you aren’t interested in working hands-on with patients, keep in mind that there are still many other options available to you.
Health care is one of the United States largest and fastest growing industries; there are approximately 15 million people in more than 200 healthcare careers, and those numbers are growing. Chalk it up to the explosion of technology in health care, as well as an unprecedented aging population. Both are wonderful things.
