Health and Medical Career Profiles and Statistics

The Healthcare industry is one of the largest employers in the United States. In addition, the projected growth rate is quite high. Demand for Healthcare services will scale rapidly as the "Baby Boomer" generation gets to retirement age.

Currently, there are about 14 million people employed in the industry, and this is projected to grow by 23 million more jobs by 2016. This is a faster growth rate than any other job category. In fact, of the 20 fastest growing occupations in the United States, seven of them are healthcare occupations.

Below you will see JobBankUSA's profiles on dozens of medical career options, organized into categories. Each profile will provide you with detailed information on where the jobs are, and the pay scale range for the jobs in each area. You can also find a list of schools that provide the education and training required for those jobs.

In the table below, the Expected Growth rating was determined as follows, using forecasted job growth data over the 10 year period 2006-2016:

  • Very High indicates growth in the number of jobs of 20% or more over the period
  • High indicates growth of 10-20%
  • Medium indicates growth of 5-10%
  • Low indicates growth of 0-5%
  • Very Low indicates a loss of jobs over the 10 year period
