Health Care and Science is a community focused on improving lives by
applying research and technology to fieldwork, clinical environments,
lab functions, and a wide variety of other roles. Members of this community have a wide range of career interests that include caring for those who are ill, safety and health concerns of general populations, and the use of knowledge of science to make the world a better place.
There are worlds of opportunity for our health professions and science graduates in companies large and small and in both the public and private sectors. While students’ interest in these careers is often driven by a desire to help others, success requires meticulous planning and preparation—especially if you plan to attend graduate or professional school.
You are probably familiar with numerous medical or practitioner roles, such as physician, dentist, physical therapist, or veterinarian, and may have interests in global or public health. But are you aware of career options in biotechnology, the pharmaceutical industry, genome science, or science writing? Or how your interests in health and life sciences could intersect with careers in government, the creative sector, or innovation and entrepreneurship?
