Start Developing the Skills for an In-Demand Future
Everyone has heard that careers in the medical field can be both lucrative and personally rewarding. What most people are not aware of is that the job availability in health care is largely connected to careers that require a two-year degree or less.
In fact, for each doctor there are over half a dozen jobs requiring a certificate or two-year degree in a variety of health-related careers.
These jobs aren’t only available right now, they are growing.
According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, employment in health occupations is projected to increase by 19 percent over the next 10 years, which is much faster than the average of most occupations. This equates to an additional 2.3 million new jobs in health-related fields. This growth is largely due to an aging population and an increase in individual access to health insurance.
Not only are these careers in-demand, they also pay well. In fact, The Bureau of Labor Statistics cites that the average median annual wage for health care practitioners and technical occupations was $61,710 in May 2014.
Piedmont Technical College offers a variety of degrees, certificates and diplomas that lead to careers in the growing realm of health care professions.
