Careers in Healthcare Rank High

Are you interested in a career in Healthcare? Healthcare professionals are in high demand and there are many great opportunities. Here are some of the top healthcare jobs and salaries according to US News.

Not surprisingly, nine of the 25(top) careers in the U.S. News list are in healthcare. Physician is one, although the lengthy training and thicket of regulations governing medicine are dimming the allure. Other healthcare jobs require far less training, have better hours, and offer the same satisfaction that comes from caregiving. Optometrists, for instance, typically work predictable hours, and they regularly watch patients walk out the door in better shape than when they came in. Physician assistants are rapidly replacing doctors as primary-care providers, and they earn healthy salaries with far less schooling. Science-minded high achievers might consider becoming a medical scientist instead of a doctor, since advances in genetics and other disciplines are leading to a revolution in preventing and curing disease.

In Demand Healthcare Jobs:
Audiologist - $62,112; Dentist - $120,864; Medical Scientist - $88,344; Occupational Therapist - $60,855; Optometrist - $98,458; Pharmacist - $98,828; Physician - $151,159; Physician Assistant - $77,863; Registered Nurse - $59,046.

As our population continues to grow and age, more and more health care professionals will be needed to keep up with the demand. There has never been a better time to earn a degree in Healthcare.
