What an important time to be in the healthcare fields!

According to the U.S. Bureau of Labor Statistics, healthcare occupations and industries are expected to have the fastest employment growth and add the most jobs between 2018 and 2028, with a projected 1.9 million new jobs generated during that time. These fields are expected to become the single largest employer in the United States, overtaking state and local government and the professional and business services.

Not only will there be plenty of job opportunities in the coming years, but many of the other key career decision-making factors support the pursuit of a health careers path. Those working in healthcare report high levels of excitement and variety, opportunities for advancement and increased pay, a sense of fulfillment and making a difference, and using their education and training on a day-to-day basis.

We here at Pre-Professional Health Careers want to help you successfully enter this exciting professional world. The most sought-after jobs in these growing fields involve education beyond high school, many requiring education beyond a four-year college degree. We are here to explore these interesting possibilities with you, to connect you with the opportunities and resources to become a competitive and compelling applicant for the professional programs to which you may eventually apply, and to navigate with you through the responsibilities and challenges that come along the way.

If you aspire to become a healthcare professional, we are on your team! The dedicated advisors and staff at Texas Tech University are committed to partnering with you for your success.

From here, it is possible!
