Occupational Overview: Health Sciences
At some point, the healthcare field touches the lives of every American. From birth to hospice care, whether we seek a doctor’s consultation, need a prescription filled or take a day off from work, we all eventually depend on the care or advisement of someone in the health care system. This well-established field, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics (BLS), is projected to add more than 4 million jobs – than any other industry between 2012 and 2022. The BLS also projects healthcare to be among the fastest-growing industries in the economy, growing nearly 19 percent through 2016 and adding as many as 5.5 million jobs – more than any other segment of the economy.
