Health, the second largest industry in our country, employs over 8.0 million workers. Physicians represent only 7% of this work force. There are over 200 other professions in the health field. Job opportunities and degree of competition for admission to clinical training vary considerably among geographic areas, states, and the individual professions. Careful planning for a primary profession and one or more alternate careers is a must. The B.S. degree with a major in Health Sciences offers a program with large blocks of elective courses tailored to meet career needs. Students should contact the department for a personal planning appointment.
