Welcome to Medical Career Training

Nurse Anesthesiologist

One of the fastest growing areas of employment today is the field of health care. According the Bureau of Labor Statistics, the health care field is one of the largest industries in the United States today. In 2008, health care provided 14.3 million jobs for hourly and salaried workers and of the twenty fastest growing occupations today, eight of them are in health care.

The demand for health professionals is also increasing do to the fact that the nations largest population, the baby boom generation, is rapidly approaching old age. Employment among health care practitioners and technical occupations is expected to increase by 21 percent by 2018. Health care will generate 3.2 million new jobs between 2008 and 2018, more than any other industry, largely due to the fact that the nation’s largest population, the baby boomers, is rapidly approaching old age, increasing demand for health care services. As the number of older people continues to grow, and as new developments allow for the treatment of more medical conditions, more health care professionals will be needed.

The decision to go into the medical field is one that should not be made based on the easy ability to find a job or a high salary, however. It is extremely hard work, with irregular and long hours, and you are constantly in a position to fulfill the demands of clients and patients. All of these factors must be considered before choosing to pursue a career in medicine. In spite of the demand that this type of career can put on you, it is an extremely fulfilling one, as you are constantly contributing to the health and well-being of other people.
