What can I do with this degree?
The rising demand for health services translates into rising demand for allied health professionals. The long-range trend for health care is upward, and while this should be positive for any industry, workforce shortages make this sector a growing concern. Allied health jobs account for as many as 200 health careers— representing 60% of the healthcare workforce. These jobs will likely continue to be a major source of healthcare and hospital jobs into the foreseeable future.
