PITTSBURGH, PA — Health care is one of the fastest-growing fields in the U.S. economy, and that means lots of opportunities for job seekers. And every position will give you the satisfaction of protecting and improving a patient’s life, in some small way.
The Bureau of Labor Statistics says that six of the 20 occupations with the fastest employment growth are medical jobs, according to the Healthcare Jobs website. Positions range from registered nurse to dental hygienist, radiology technician, dietitian and physician assistant.
Factors contributing to this industry’s growth include the aging U.S. population, which will require more services, and the rise of innovative medical technology, says Healthcare Jobs.
