Health Care Management
Employment for medical and health services managers is expected to grow faster than the average for all careers through 2020, according to the U.S. Department of Labor (DOL). The DOL reports that “as the large baby-boom population ages and people remain active later in life, the health care industry as a whole will see an increase in the demand for medical services. This increase will in turn result in an increase in the number of physicians, patients, and procedures, as well as in the number of facilities. Managers will be needed to organize and manage medical information and staffs in the health care industry.” Demand will also increase in the offices of health practitioners, as services that were formerly provided in hospitals are shifted to these settings.
