    Careers in health sciences growing


    Some of the largest areas of job growth in the United States are in health care and health care administration. Healthcare professionals with a strong education are in high demand, and the job market for these types of jobs is expected to grow even more over the next few years.

    The issue with getting a college education though is the amount of time it takes out of your schedule, and the rising costs of tuition. For many, leaving a full time job to pursue a new career is not possible. Today, more and more students are turning to online education to get the education and degree they need to be successful.

    Online universities such as Trident even offer PhD degrees in health sciences in a number of fields, including global health researcher and health care administration. Just like with any doctorate program, the work required will be very challenging, but the payoff is great, and the amount you learn will be even greater.

    Careers in health sciences and public health are available in both the private and government sectors, and getting your degree can provide you with the skills necessary to enter into a health executive position. In these positions, you could be conducting research, teaching and managing others using the analytical skills you learned.
