Do you imagine yourself in a career that has meaning? A career in healthcare could be right for you! Here’s why: You’ll have the satisfaction of helping others in need. People who seek medical care might be in need of treatment, suffering from pain, or feeling desperate. As a healthcare professional you’ll be part of the medical team who helps a patient experiencing health issues or simply seeking preventive care. You could provide them comfort and care through your work in a medical office, hospital, or other healthcare setting. In an office setting, you would provide valuable assistance to other health professionals and patients. For example, you could instill confidence in patients that their billing and insurance is handled properly and that their privacy is maintained. Or you could work directly with patients as a Practical Nurse, Medical or Dental Assistant. And, remember, in any setting, a smile can go a long way! There’s a variety of career paths. Can’t stand the sight of blood? Don’t worry, there’s still a place for you. The healthcare system needs all sorts of people from doctors and nurses to people who handle logistics. For example, an administrative health specialist helps keep the day to day of a medical office running smoothly. Administrative positions help process patients, coordinate with insurance companies, and maintain medical records. Healthcare and insurance coverage is expensive and the costs are expected to rise 7 percent in 2015 alone.1 Professionals who understand the healthcare system, how to maintain records, and how to bill properly have a valuable role. Whether you work behind a desk or in the exam room, you can still make a very real difference in people’s lives. Positions are and will continue to be in demand. If you want a career that’ll last, then healthcare is a clear choice. With an aging population and advancing technology, professionals are needed who understand these changes and can evolve with them. For example, employment of medical assistants is expected to grow much faster than the average at 29 percent by 2022.2 Now’s the time to start on a growing career path.
