The health care industry is one of the few career fields that, despite hard economic woes, is hiring at a solid rate. The Bureau of Labor and Statistics reports that health care employment continued to increase in October, 2009 (29,000), and that since the start of the recession, health care has added 597,000 jobs. As baby boomers age and Generation X’ers have children, health care professionals will become more in-demand than ever. Health Care careers are expected to grow faster than any other industry.
EDCT offers vast and diverse programs ranging from entry level to professional development. Our instructors are subject matter experts who deliver high quality education that sets our students apart in the employment arena.
Careers in health care can be divided in two fields:
- The hands-on side or clinical health care
- The indirect side or administrative health care
