Health Science

Healthcare is the fastest growing industry in the United States. Technological advances have made new procedures and methods of diagnosis and treatment possible. Clinical developments, such as infection control, less invasive surgical techniques, advances in reproductive technology and gene therapy for cancer treatment, increase longevity and improve the quality of life for many people. Advances in information technology improve patient care and worker efficiency. Information on vital signs and orders for tests are transferred electronically, eliminating the need for paper and reducing record keeping errors. Healthcare students prepare for careers promoting health and wellness and diagnosing and treating injuries and diseases. Some careers involve working with people, and others involve researching disease or collecting and formatting data and information. Settings include hospitals, medical offices, laboratories, communities, sports arenas or cruise ships.
