Many students are interested in "health" careers. From being a doctor to a physical therapist to a medical laboratory worker, the career opportunities are many and varied.
The links provided serve as a good introduction to the range of health career opportunities possible and the types of training needed. Also try the major search engines for more information.
To help your search, think of the health career opportunities in terms of primary care by the "medical" doctor with support from the "allied health" professions, including professional health providers such as physical therapists and medical and laboratory support professional staff such as dental hygienists, phlebotomists, and respiratory therapists. The distinctions are based on educational and professional requirements as much as anything else.
Many of these allied health careers do not need four year of college and training is available at 2-year institutions or 4-year colleges with 2-year programs.
