What Are The Most In-Demand Health Care Jobs?

 Health Care JobsHealth care jobs are on the rise now, thanks to an increasing baby boomer population, new innovations in health care and research and of course, the continuing needs to push back a number of viruses and diseases which crop up every year. There are a huge range of health care jobs, from medical billing to open heart surgeon, but some jobs are going to be more in demand than others. What are the most in demand health jobs upcoming for this year?

1. Dental Hygienist: Due to the increasing baby boomer population with bad teeth, dental hygienists are going to be in demand for a while. It’s a great job that pays well (median salary of $70,000), it’s low stress since you work to your schedule with comfortable surroundings, you can do it with about two years of education and it has a growth of 38% from 2010 to 2020. Pretty cushy! However, if teeth and mouths gross you out, this will not be the place for you.

2. Biomedical Engineer: This job is probably actually tied with dental hygienists because it has a good work environment, it isn’t too stressful and it’s very interesting. Biomedical engineers are the people who make the equipment doctors have to use, from tools to MRIs, building them, designing them, inventing them and maintaining them. Because of the big boom in technology, the demand is expected to grow by as much as 62% over the next ten years and the salary is an average $87,000 which is nothing to sneeze at. The one thing which may make it less appealing than hygienist is that you will have to go to school for a longer period of time; however, you will command a greater salary at the end and you’ll get to do some interesting technical work.

3. Occupational Therapist: Occupational therapists have held steady as an in demand job for a year or so now and it’s easy to see why. They are found on a wide range of workplaces which require a great deal of physical effort such as construction jobs, rig jobs and other jobs where injuries are a fact of life. Occupational therapists help these people get back on their feet and ready for work again, so they are in heavy demand. Occupational therapists work regular hours, decide how much they are going to work, have a good salary and a solid growth rate, so it’s well worth looking into.

4. Registered Nurse: Registered nurses are projected to have the highest degree of growth with 700,000 new jobs believed to be added between 2010 and 2020. The demand is growing because of the aging population, it requires face to face contact meaning that it cannot be done virtually or outsourced and there is more emphasis on preventative care and on taking proper care of an aged population. This all means that nursing is growing in demand and is a great place to find work.

4. Diagnostic Medical Sonographer: A long title for a technical, but very important, job. In this field, people merge tech and health care using imaging equipment to do everything from assessing medical conditions to checking on the gender of an upcoming baby. This job is growing in demand because of the improvement in medical technology and a greater demand for this technology to be used by patients. This in turn means that there requires more people to run the machinery! If you enjoy working with technology and with patients, this could be a good place to work.

5. Dietician: Finally, with a growing interest in eating healthy and weighing less, as well as more interest in intolerance’s and allergies, dieticians are growing in demand. Dieticians work with clients and with doctors to help people eat better in order to remain healthy. It may not sound like much, but with more and more people paying attention to what they put in their mouths, the demand for some expert guidance is growing and that’s where you could come in.

Of course there are many more healthcare jobs out there and finding your place in the system won’t be terribly hard. You don’t have to spend eight or ten years in school anymore to break into the healthcare industry; people can start out with a year or two of training and go from there if they so choose. These are simply several of the top growing jobs in the medical industry, but there are plenty of other jobs around. If you’re looking to help people and find a job that will be around for a long time, health care is definitely a good field.
