You can find everything you want to know about a wide variety of health careers at ExploreHealthCareers.org, an award-winning, totally free website offering comprehensive, up-to-date information on how to prepare and pay for pursuing a career in the health professions.
Did you know that, according to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, 4 out of the 6 fastest-growing occupations are in the health field? There’s never been a better time to pursue a career in health.
Some of the excellent resources on this site include:
- Is a health career right for you?
- Paying for school
- Healthcare fields (with information on a VERY wide range of health careers, from pharmacy technician or dentist to athletic trainer or medical librarian)
This website was created when a “group of leading educators, thinkers, and policy makers put their heads together about how to improve diversity in the health professions. Among their recommendations, the #1 priority was to establish a central, online source of information about health career opportunities.”
