Whether you are still in high school or considering a career change, the healthcare field can be a good option. Due to the aging of America and increasing federal funding of health insurance, job growth in all areas of healthcare is expected to be better than other segments of the economy. “Overall employment in healthcare occupations is projected to grow 13 percent from 2021 to 2031, much faster than the average for all occupations; this increase is expected to result in about 2 million new jobs over the decade. In addition to new jobs from growth, opportunities arise from the need to replace workers who leave their occupations permanently.

  1. As a medical technologist, I found this field very engaging for the couple years I worked in clinical labs, and it provided a good entry point for working in research laboratories as well.
    The best part of being a med-tech (BS or BA) is that you are basically an undergraduate pathologist; i.e., you get to help patients without having to actually interact with them, and you avoid the intense competition of medical school. The collegiality of most clinical labs is very supportive and satisfying.
