Health Services Remain Strong

Studying for a degree in health care is the first step in making a career of helping others. Earning a health services degree will prepare you for a jobs in various health care sectors, some of the most popular fields being medical assisting, medical billing and coding, and physical therapy.

Jobs in health care and those requiring postsecondary education will show the biggest gains by 2016, according to a report released on Monday by the president's Council of Economic Advisers.

The report, titled "Preparing the Workers of Today for the Jobs of Tomorrow," surveys previous research done on the parts of the labor force expected to grow most quickly. It then argues for ways to improve the educational system so that American workers can more readily adapt to an ever more skill-based economy.

The report was a response, in part, to criticism of the president's $787 billion economic stimulus plan. The administration contends its plan will create millions of jobs.

The economy of 2016, the report says, will look very much like the economy of 2008 in terms of how workers will be distributed across major industries.

Employment in health and education services " which, unlike most other industries in the current recession, remains robust " will continue to skyrocket. A subsector of health care called "other medical services and dentists," which includes home health care, outpatient care and medical laboratory positions, is projected to add the most jobs.

Earning your health services degree online will introduce you to coursework in health care related topics such as health policy, public health, and anatomy and physiology. Health services training programs often require additional coursework in a specialized area in addition to the basic curriculum.
