Health care

Overview

The health care sector offers diverse opportunities in clinical, research and administrative settings. Opportunities range from patient care and advocacy to research, health care policy and public health. While these careers are often very rewarding — both personally and financially — many require a minimum of four to eight years of education before beginning a career. Explore this section to learn what kind of health care career is right for you.
