• Top 10 Medical Careers with the Highest Growth per Year

    According to the Bureau of Labor Statistics Projections Overview for 2010-2020, “the healthcare and social assistance industry is projected to create about 28 percent of all new jobs created in U.S. economy. This industry — which includes public and private hospitals, nursing and residential care facilities, and individual and family services — is expected to grow by 33 percent, or 5.7 million new jobs. Employment growth will be driven by an aging population and longer life expectancies, as well as new treatments and technologies.” Government statistics aside, this conclusion has proven to be true thus far as Brookings has also ruled that since 2003, “the U.S. health care sector has grown more than ten-times faster than the rest of the economy, adding 2.6 million jobs.”
