Jobs: A career in healthcare

If you plan to make a career in healthcare, then a great first step is to study for a qualification or certification in a subject such as phlebotomy or medical billing. We have included a range of articles that explain some of the career options that are available, along with typical salaries.

The school you choose is a very important part that helps you get in to the job market: take a look at the school’s job placement record; does the school have links with commercial healthcare centers who might recruit ? What percentage of students get jobs after they receive their qualification ? Does the school offer placement assistance or career counselling?

 

Whichever route you choose and the goal you want to achieve –  if it is healthcare, medical research, working with patients or assisting a doctor – I hope that you find this site useful and the guides are relevant to your needs and it helps you get a step closer to achieving your goal.
