Many students are interested in joining the healthcare industry, and for good reason. The medical industry continues to grow and evolve. There will always be a need for medical professionals to care for patients across the globe.
The Medical Field Is Growing Fast
According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare occupations are expected to increase by 15% between now and 2029, much faster than average for all other occupations. We can expect to see approximately 2.4 million new jobs added to the industry, which is more than any other occupational group.
This rapid growth is caused by an aging occupation and a higher demand for healthcare services. The COVID-19 pandemic may also be a motivating factor in the growth.
