Career Options

Relevant healthcare occupations are projected to grow regionally (Chicago in particular), in the Midwest, and nationally in the next five years. The strongest growth is expected to be within medical and health services management.

Healthcare is an expanding and dynamic economic sector. Job forecasting reports consistently point to healthcare as a dominant force in the economy, in terms of both projected growth and percentage share of all jobs. Recent projections from the Bureau of Labor Statistics show that half of the 10 fastest growing job categories are related to healthcare (physical therapist assistants, home health aides). With this growth comes the need for effective administrators and managers who understand the complex patchwork of the U.S. healthcare system and its regulatory environment and can manage resources and teams in a range of contexts.
