As the nation’s second-largest field of employment, healthcare is a fast growing and rapidly changing industry expected to be worth trillions in the near future. A job in healthcare can represent any number of opportunities from working in a hospital to working for a government agency, insurance organization, consulting firm, group practice, pharmaceutical company, or biotechnology firms. In each of these areas, there’s a massive need for well-qualified individuals who can respond to critical problems. That’s where a healthcare management career can be valuable.

As a healthcare manager, you’ll be responsible for managing and coordinating health services while working closely with physicians and administrators to best represent your facility. It’s a rewarding career field with a positive job outlook—employment is expected to grow much-faster-than-average, according to the Bureau of Labor Statistics.
