  Week In Review

Occupational Overview: Health Sciences
At some point, the health sciences 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 – more 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.
A field with this much growth warrants special attention from our sector and, likewise, from Career College Central. Every month, we bring you the latest happenings in Health Sciences so you can stay informed about this booming industry
