While the Covid-19 pandemic has highlighted both the vital role - and sometimes critical shortage - of healthcare workers, health professionals are needed even in the absence of a healthcare crisis.
Jobs in the health industry are in-demand and rewarding. Medical practitioners such as nurses, paramedics and radiation technicians focus on diagnosing and treating injury and disease, as well as promoting wellness. Medical researchers seek to improve future health outcomes by collecting and analyzing health data.
The need for healthcare workers is universal, and jobs can be found in the community, hospitals, medical or dental offices or laboratories, schools, cruise ships, medevac units, sports arenas and even space centers!Get Started
