Career Outlook

The need for effective managers and professionals with significant responsibility in the healthcare set us continues to grow every year. The healthcare industry continues to evolve and differentiate. There is an increased emphasis on decentralizing the delivery of health with the creation of community healthcare facilities that decrease the reliance on tertiary healthcare facilities. The increased number and as well as the scope of work that needs to be undertaken at the community health facilities has led to increased demand for healthcare professionals who can administer and manage these facilities and functions.

 

Both public and private healthcare operations require effective managers who oversee the quality of care that is delivered in these health set-ups. Professionals who have formal education in the managerial aspects of healthcare are well suited for taking up these roles of responsibility. If you have a passion for healthcare and management, this is an excellent career choice for you. Through this career you can not only immerse yourself in the healthcare domain and work alongside physicians, nurses and other allied healthcare staff, you also get to utilize fundamentals of leadership and management to run teams or organizations to success. As you evolve in your career with assuming roles of increasing responsibilities, you will be involved in governance, policy development and executive managerial responsibility and accountability.

 

Overall the healthcare job market is less affected by economic fluctuations and this market continues to expand at a significant rate year-on-year. If we look at the Bureau of Labour Statistics (BLS), the healthcare jobs are expected to grow at 30-40% a year which is almost 4 times higher than the average growth for all industries.
