The Healthcare Job That Makes the Biggest Difference


If you’re going to look for a career, then it makes sense to choose one that you know will still be around a decade or so from now. Some experts think that around 40% of jobs could be lost through automation and robotics, which means there will be plenty of people who suddenly find themselves out of work. 

There are some jobs, however, that are going to buck this trend; they won’t only exist, but they’ll continue to grow, in some instances dramatically so. One such example is virtually all positions related to healthcare. Indeed, of the ten jobs that are expected to grow in the next decade, eight of them are essentially different ways to say ‘nurse.’ But it’s not as if you need to be on the frontline of healthcare; in fact, perhaps the biggest impact is made behind the scenes, by the people working in the admin side of things.

Medical and health services managers are increasingly in demand, and it’s a profession that is expected to grow by some 20% in the coming years. Aside from typically being well-paid, people that work in these roles also get to know that they’re making a positive difference in the world. While the roles are diverse, ultimately, the goal is singular: to improve the level of healthcare. 

So do you have what it takes? To learn more about the role of healthcare executives, take a look at the infographic below, which was produced by the University of Southern California.
