You’ve always loved helping people and found an interest in those sluggish science classes. Whether you prefer to diagnose, treat, or prevent, it’s obvious healthcare is the place for you.
In healthcare, you need others, and they definitely need you. The healthcare industry added 271,000 new positions last year, and the upward trend is continuing in 2014. Job boards have already seen a 16% increase in healthcare job postings compared to this time last year*.
There's a shortage of healthcare professionals worldwide. With an overall aging population and the increasing complexity of the healthcare system, the time has never been better to be a trained and qualified healthcare professional. If it’s time to start your healthcare career, up, up and away!*HealthECareers, http://www.healthecareers.com/article/healthcare-job-outlook-most-new-jobs-projected/174918

Two concerns reign supreme at the University of Pittsburgh School of Medicine. The first is turning out physicians ready to offer top-notch care to patients. (The school regularly receives especially high rankings in the areas of drug and alcohol abuse, geriatrics, pediatrics, women’s health, and primary care). The second is educating investigators whose research will impact the future of medical science. (The campus building where Pitt faculty member Jonas Salk conducted his research on the first polio vaccine is now an historic landmark.) The University of Pittsburgh Medical Center Hospitals and Facilities aids both endeavors by serving as a training and research center for students. Not to mention, it happens to receive one of the highest amounts of funding from the National Institutes of Health. In addition to studies leading to an M.D., the School of Medicine offers masters and doctoral programs through its Graduate Studies division. Select undergrads can contribute to cutting-edge research at Pitt through intensive 10-week summer programs in areas such as cell biology and immunology.
