Vast changes in the health care industry are translating into a wealth of opportunities for health care professionals — from the bedside to the business side.
Where are these changes coming from? An influx of patients is impacting the system — including aging baby boomers, returning veterans, those with chronic diseases and millions of individuals due to receive health coverage under the Affordable Care Act.
Demand for health care support products and services — such as medical equipment manufacturing and insurance — is growing across the entire field. Add to all this the advances brought about by health care reform, emerging medical technologies, environmental policies and regulatory measures.
With so much change and growth, now is the time to launch or enhance your career in this fast-growing field.
Career roles are expanding through the development of health care specializations.
Job vacancies are being created by retiring baby boomers, including leadership positions that will need to be filled.
Diverse opportunities are being found in hospitals, long-term care facilities, pharmaceutical companies, insurance companies, IT, medical waste management and more.
Our College of Health Professions can help prepare you to pursue these opportunities. The rigorous, real-world curricula — offered in our School of Health Services Administration and School of Nursing — provide the foundation for you to meet your career goals and help you become a qualified job candidate employers are looking for.
