Working in the Healthcare Industry
Whether we talk about working at your local dentist office, or at a major hospital, what are the benefits of working in healthcare?
Career Opportunities for all Education Levels
Within the healthcare field, there are career and job opportunities that range from every sort of education level.
Fresh out of high school? Did you know that some healthcare clinics or offices would be willing to hire high school graduates and train on the job?
Have some time in retail or customer service? Front office administration, patient account coordinators, schedulers, receptionist might be the perfect position for you!
Pharmacy technicians, medical assistants and other support staff could enjoy a career with only an associates degree.
But the healthcare industry would not be able to continue its growth without physicians and healthcare providers. Now more than ever, the need for doctors, nurses, and other healthcare professionals is high throughout the country.
Working in Healthcare is the Largest Source of Jobs
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare occupations are projected to grow by 18 percent, or 2.4 million jobs, from 2016 to 2026, and eight of the top-20 fastest-growing professions are in the healthcare sector.
From dental offices, to hospitals, to urgent care, to your local acupuncturist, the health care industry is not slowing down anytime soon.
With more Americans having access to health insurance, the need for services will only continue increasing, right along side employment opportunities.
A Rewarding Career, for You and Others
With the growth of healthcare industry, it is very likely that a position within a healthcare company will be paying a higher salary than other industries around you. While this is rewarding for you as an employee, there are benefits that extend to others around you.
Patient and healthcare employee interaction can be very rewarding. If a primary care doctor has been able to help a patient overcome certain health issues, the patient reaps the benefit of having that doctor.
Or if you are a front desk staff member who can provide a smile to someone going through a hard time, it will surprise you how far your smile will go!
